I am an Assistant Professor at WMG, University of Warwick, leading the development of Data Science, Machine Learning and related modules in the WMG undergraduate program. Prior to this I was a research assistant in the Digital Life-cycle Management Group at WMG.

I obtained my Ph.D. in Engineering from the University of Warwick under the supervision of Prof. Darek Ceglarek and Dr. Pasquale Franciosa, and my Masters in Industrial Engineering and Management from IIT-Kharagpur under the supervision of Prof. M. K. Tiwari.

My doctoral research focused on developing methodologies that enable the creation of a robust and adaptive assembly system that can mitigate the effects of input parts' geometric and dimensional variations on products in a smart manufacturing environment. Specifically focusing on (1) accurate modelling and simulation of part shape errors, and (2) effective in-line implementation of 3D-optical scanners, with the aim of achieving near zero defects.
