Major Professional Contributions:

His research work has been broadly in the area of advanced mechanical metallurgy, with special emphasis on structure-mechanical property correlations in metals and alloys and development of specialty steels. At DMRL he has undertaken a comprehensive research programme to develop a cost effective low-alloy alternative to the highly alloyed 250 grade maraging steel, best known for its attractive strength-toughness combination. His research has eventually led to the development of a new ultra-high strength, high toughness low-alloy steel, designated as DMR-1700. Under his leadership, technology for indigenous production of AB-class naval steels has successfully been established.
