I am working as Professor in the Department Civil Engineering, Anurag University, Hyderabad. I had finished Ph.D. in Civil Engineering from Andhra University, Visakhapatnam, Andhra Pradesh, India during 2003 to 2006. 

I worked as a head of the department of Civil Engineering and chairman board of studies at GMR Institute of Information Technology for 4 years and also HOD & chairman board of at Vignan’s Institute of Information Technology for 2 years and I had   worked as Vice principal at Gokul Institute of information Technology for 1 year.

I supervised twelve Master degree Thesis and 25 Under graduate Projects. I  was a member of various professional society such as Institute of Engineers (IEI) and Associate member at Andhra Pradesh Academe of Science (APAS)

I have been organized AICTE Sponsor, two weeks Faculty Development program (FDP) on “coastal zone problems and their remedies” in the year2010. I has also attended more than 20 STTPs/FDPs/Workshops at different places. I attended and presented more than 25 national and international conferences. I had delivered Invited talks at International conference on “Civil and Architectural Engineering, held during April 14-15, 2016, organized by International Academy of Science, technology, engineering and Management, at Sydney, Australia and International conference on “Environmental Systems Research” (ICESR 2014) During December 13-14, 2014 organized by Chemical, Biological, Environmental, Engineering Society KualaLumpur, Malaysia.
