Designed and prototyped components used CAD (Solid works) and workshop for prototyping.
Model extraction from CAD models, and development of multiple anatomically detailed models and evaluation of MR coils simulations using full wave Maxwell's equations
Independent Transmit (Tx) & Receive (Rx) coil arrays are used to tackle (electric and magnetic) field in homogeneity that arise at ultra-high field MRI. An important part of my thesis work was bench marking of coil performance for efficient and safe use in-vivo.
The arrays were tested for reproducibility, reliability and safe usage across multiple studies. EM/RF Finite Difference Time Domain simulations of the Tx and composite of five head models were used to optimize parameters, to obtain homogenize whole brain excitation with low RF absorption.

Different 9Cr Steel test data of inhouse and those from Japan were analyzed : to develop data analytic tools for rapid development of new alloys at NETL in collaboration with Case Western University.
Pairwise correlations were done as part of exploratory analysis. Variables of non-zero variance & frequent occurrences were used to predict strength, ductility and other mechanical properties.
Multi-variate and stepwise regression were used to determine rank order of variables in explaining a mechanical property.
Random forest recursive partitioning technique was used to explore expanded composition space to predict property of new alloy from existing test data.
Different techniques i.e. ANOVA, and Tukey HSD tests on mean of samples, principle components, stochastic embedding (t-SNE), hierarchical and medoid, kNN clustering have been used to visualize different classes of alloys
