Dr.Anshu Dhar Jayal
School of Mechanical Materials and Energy Engineering
Anshu Dhar Jayal received his bachelors degree in mechanical engineering from the University of Pune in 1998. He then received a masters degree in the same field from the University of Utah in 2003, with research work involving modification of deposition tool paths in fused deposition modeling (FDM), followed by a doctoral degree in the same program in 2006, with research focused towards investigating cutting fluid application effects in machining. He worked at the University of Utah as a postdoctoral researcher, and briefly at Intellevate India (Pvt.) Ltd. as a patent analyst, before joining the University of Kentucky as a postdoctoral researcher in 2008 and then joining IIT Ropar as an assistant professor in 2011. His research interests are broadly related to advancement of sustainable manufacturing, with an emphasis on dry, near-dry and cryogenic machining.
