• HOD , Mechanical Engg

She is currently working as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering. She completed her Ph.D. in Material Science and Engineering from IIT Roorkee in February 2020. Her area of research actively involves fabrication and characterization of nano-phase and multiscale reinforcement composite with different functionalities for structural applications. Her research interest includes multiscale-mechanics and nano-mechanics of composite materials. The main focus of her research include effective dispersion of nano-phase along with its quantification, synergistic effects of nanofillers on mechanical and thermo-mechanical properties of composites, nanofiller modified polymer matrix for improving the out of plane and transverse properties of FRPs. Ankita has experience from processing to advanced characterizations and interpretation of polymer and composite (polymer and metal matrix), with 13 publications in peer-reviewed journals, 1 book published with CRS press and have presented in more than 14 national and international conference.
