Deepak worked as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mechanical-Mechatronics Engineering at The LNM Institute of Technology, Jaipur (India) from 2016 to 2019, researching in advanced machining processes and advanced welding processes.

He gained his PhD at Malaviya National Institute of Technology, Jaipur, India in 2016. His work was based on a relatively new field of hybrid machining processes for fabrication of micro-features in difficult-to-cut Inconel718 superalloy. The research explored several hybrid-electric discharge machining processes for fabrication of common micro-features like micro-surfaces, micro-holes, micro-channels, etc. While doing so, he experimentally demonstrated the benefits of hybridisation of different mechanism/processes in enhancing the process performance.

Teaching has been Deepak’s prime interest - he enjoys teaching and interacting with students taking subjects including Manufacturing Processes, Unconventional Machining Processes, Production Management, Operations Research, Computer-Aided Manufacturing, etc. He has 8+ years of teaching and research experience and 30+ research publications in peer-reviewed Journals and Conferences.

Research interests

Deepak's current project work explores the application of electrical discharge machining process for enhanced osseointegration and antibacterial capabilities of β-phase Titanium Implant. This project is funded by under H2020-EU.1.3.2 with Overall budget €224 933,76. This is a multidisciplinary work and being supervised by experts: Dr Gwendolen Reilly, Dr Frederik Claeyssens, Professor Russell Goodall, and Dr Joanna Shepherd.
