Dr. Ashwini Kumar is currently working as Associate Professor (Research Track Faculty) at the Department of Mechanical Engineering, SGT University, Gurugram, India. Prior to joining the university, Dr. Kumar has gained 12+ Years of experience holding different academic and Research responsibilities in different organizations. He has completed his research in Optimal Thermohydraulic Performance of Three sides Artificially Roughened Solar Air Heaters at the National Institute of Technology, Jamshedpur. He received the Doctor of Philosophy from the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the National Institute of Technology, Jamshedpur. He has authored several scientific articles in high Impact Journals. His research contribution includes articles in Artificial Roughness, Heat Transfer, Composites, Solar Air Heaters, Coatings, CFD Analysis, Fins and Flow Analysis and Thermal Optimization Techniques. He has received Best Session Paper Award in International Conferences, 2016 in NIT Patna, and the “Academic Excellence Award” for the session 2018-19 by Jayoti Vidyapeeth Women’s University, Jaipur, during the international conference ETCDWP-II, 2019, 12-14 Feb 2019, Jaipur, India. Dr. Kumar is associated with many Universities, along with that, he is an Editorial Board Member of Reputed Journals, and also a Reviewer of International Journal (SCI & Scopus Index). He has published a total of 101 research articles to date, which includes 40 papers in SCI/Scopus, 29 International /national conferences, 3 books, and 10 book chapters with total Google scholar citations of 1390+. He has also patented a no. of work based on a different technical system. Also looks forward to guiding many research scholars often developing his own interest in the field in which he is an expediter. He believes that Science, Engineering, and Technology are advancing at a fast pace, and obsolescence of physical infrastructure, skills, and competence take place rapidly. He is keen on taking steps to improve the existing infrastructure, investment, and intellectual strength wherever they exist and network them so as to utilize them effectively and optimally for meeting the changing needs. Not only does he profess the values of Indian culture but also does practice many of the fundamental principles of humanity and society. While dedicating himself to the cause of creating world-class infrastructure, he has also undertaken many community services in various parts of India out of his quest to contribute more to society. Refrigeration and Air Conditioning, Fluid Mechanics, Computational Fluid Dynamics.
