Currently, I am working towards obtaining a PhD in Biomechanics, within the Institute of Medical and Biological Engineering (iMBE) at the University of Leeds. I qualified with a Master of Technology at the Energy Institute(RGIPT) Bengaluru, where I worked on a Patient-specific computational study on implant fixation of femoral fractures. I graduated with a Bachelor of Technology in Mechanical Engineering at the Bapatla Engineering College. During this time, I have been introduced to Orthopedic Research and developed a novel biodegradable implant material for temporary fracture fixation.

I managed to gain experience in Developing finite element models from medical imaging, Computational analysis, Biomaterial synthesis, In-vitro degradation studies, and a few material characterization techniques such as SEM, EDS, and XRD.



Research interests

My PhD work focuses on Developing an engineering approach(In-silico & In-vitro) for assessing the effect of bleeding on the bone for patients with bleeding disorders, implementing multi-physics models to understand the direct and indirect effect of blood on joints, and experimental validation.
