Executive Summary
My current research activities are in the broad field of Additive Manufacturing. Emphasis will be on slicing and tool path generation for weld-deposition based AM with experimental studies. I would like to classify my research work in two categories:

(a) Identification of overhanging features from a CAD model and

(b) Slicing and path planning techniques required for realizing complex shapes.

Married to Divya and has an 18 month kid, named Dhanvith Bhardwaj. In free time, I like to solve sudoko and rubik’s cube.
