Before coming to IIT-Madras, I was a postdoc at Los Alamos National Lab (LANL) in New Mexico, USA. Prior to that I got my PhD from Katholieke Universiteit Leuven (KUL), Belgium. I lead the laboratory for the mechanics of microstructures. We focus on the mechanical behaviour of metallic materials from a microstructural point of view by combined computational and experimental approaches. Crystal plasticity and multiscale modelling are the primary tools we use. We focus on a wide range of technologically critical structural materials such as duplex stainless steels, titanium alloys and nickel-based superalloys. We specifically look at processing-induced mechanical anisotropy in materials. We address both fundamental scientific questions and industrially relevant problems. Recently, we also ventured into the use of data sciences to address the issues related to the mechanics of materials.
