 He joined BITS Pilani K K Birla Goa Campus in 2004 and teaches the courses related to Manufacturing and Production Engineering. He has 18 years of teaching experience at first degree as well higher degree levels. One student has successfully completed Ph.D. under his guidance while presently he is individually guiding three doctoral students. His key research areas include Rotational Moulding of Plastics,Structure-Property-Processibility studies on Polymeric materials,  Fiber Reinforced Composites (FRPs) and Analysis of Material Processing Techniques.
 
He has received research grants from Department of Science and Technology (DST), Govt. of India as well as University Grant Commission (UGC) for the project related with polymer processing methods using nanocomposites. He has publications in journals of national and international repute and presented his work in reputed conferences in India as well as abroad.
 
Apart from active participation in course and curriculum development in BITS, at present he is extensively working on Rotational Moulding of plastics which has gained considerable importance over last decade.

Here the key activities include establishing a center for Rotational Moulding at BITS Pilani Goa, developing materials property guide useful for industry, developing standards for underground rotational moulding tanks and training of employees from the industries.
 
He was invited to deliver talks in the annual conferences of rotomoulding industries on importance of testing for Rotational Moulding (at Jaipur, 2017) and Analysis of Rotomoulded underground tanks (at Delhi, 2018). Due to his efforts he has gained a good recognition in the Rotational Moulding Industry. He oraganised the first ever Industry Meet involving about 35 top rank Industry officials at BITS Pilani K K Birla Goa Campus on July 21, 2018. The Inaguration of 'Center of Excellenvce of Rotaional Molulding for Edcation and Research' took place in this meet.
