He was chairman of NCDDM 2007 at SLIET Longowal, has delivered several keynote lectures, and has chaired several conference sessions both in India and abroad.
He has coordinated and organized several MHRD/AICTE sponsored faculty development programmes on Mechatronics, Modeling and Simulation, etc.
He has jointly coordinated two GIAN courses.
The first one on, "Dynamic Modeling of Multi-Physics Systems using Bond Graph," 28th November to 7th December 2016, with Foreign Faculty as Professor Genevieve Dauphin-Tanguy, Centrale Lille, France, and also been the Indian Faculty for the course.
The second one on, "Manufacturing Automation – Robotics and Process Integration," 17th to 22nd December 2018, with Foreign Faculty as Professor Subramaniam Balakrishnan, University of Manitoba, Canada.
His research interests are in System Dynamics and Control – especially using Bond Graph, Mechatronics, Robotics and Automation, Mechanisms and Machines, Simulation, understanding musculoskeletal actuation and systematic development of prosthetic devices for rehabilitation of hand impairment.
He is also very passionate about teaching and has designed many innovative lecture presentations together with MATLAB based simulations.
