About


Dr. P. Kumar has joined as a faculty member in the Institute on March 2019. Before joining IIEST, he was working as an assistant professor with Dr. KN Modi foundation, New Delhi. He obtained his Ph.D. from the Department of Space Engineering and Rocketry, Birla Institute of Technology (BIT), Mesra Ranchi in 2018. His doctoral and current research areas are in energetic materials, thermal decomposition & combustion, propulsion, catalytic combustion, and combustion kinetics.  Principally, his research interest is in the development of green energetic materials (GEM's), and synthesis of metal oxides or catalysts for their intended applications in the field of rocket/ missile propulsion. He is currently working for the development of EM's having less detrimental effects on the earth's atmosphere and on the human beings. Further, he is fascinated to extend his research areas in the field of liquid and droplet combustion studies, and fluid interaction studies with hot surfaces.
