He received his Ph.D. degree from Indian Institute of Technology Madras in 2008. His Ph.D. thesis entitled
“Inequalities and Geometry of Hyperbolic-type Metrics, Radius Problems, and Norm Estimates” was written under
the supervision of Professor S. Ponnusamy, IIT Madras. The National Board for Higher Mathematics, Department
of Atomic Energy, awarded him the NBHM Post-doctoral Fellowship in 2008. With this fellowship, he did his
post-doctoral research at IIT Madras until he joined IIT Indore in September 2010 as an Assistant Professor.

After joining IIT Indore, he has participated and
delivered a series of invited talks at several scientific events held in India, Japan, China, United States, Ukraine, and Russia.
His main research area is Geometric Function Theory and the current research interests include Univalent Function Theory, Special Functions,
Hyperbolic-type Metrics, and Quasiconformal Mappings. He has been collaborating with researchers from India, Japan, China,
United States, and Finland.
He supervised six Ph.D. scholars, one M.Sc. student, and at present, he is supervising one more Ph.D. scholar.
Currently, he is working as a Professor in the Department of Mathematics of IIT Indore.
He was heading the Department of Mathematics from June 20, 2012 until September 24, 2015, and the School of Basic Sciences during April 3, 2015 -
