“Currently, I am in my residence at Kolkata due to the nationwide lockdown in India. It is hot and sunny here. I am getting on with my research in confinement. The heart of my research is to design novel alloys by combining CALPHAD thermodynamic calculations with experiments for advanced structural applications. To achieve this, I perform deeper microstructural understanding using Electron microscopy. Understanding the deformation behaviour of these novel alloys is another prime goal of my research.
The results of my research will be beneficial for the transport and energy sector.
Lighter alloys mean higher performance, lesser emission and greater efficiency. This will be helpful in reducing global warming and pollution. It will also contribute to finding solutions for sustainable energy.
