Dr. Harpreet Singh Grewal, Associate Professor, Department of Mechanical Engineering, has featured in the list of the top 2% of scientists in the world.
Stanford University has released the list that identifies the top 2% of the most-cited scientists in various disciplines. Dr. Grewal has been included in the list of scientists who have excelled in research in the fields of Mechanical Engineering.
The list, released on October 19, was created by Stanford experts on the basis of standardized citation indicators like information on citations, h-index, co-authorship, and a composite indicator last year.
Dr. Grewal’s research interests include developing bio-inspired superhydrophobic self-cleaning metallic and polymer surfaces with tuned wetting, adhesion, and frictional properties. Further, he is also involved in surface modifications for controlling wear, and corrosion using techniques such as thermal spraying, microwave processing, and friction stir processing. He has published more than 80 peer-reviewed International Journal papers, several national/International conference papers, patents, and sponsored projects from DST-SERB, NRB, and CSIR.
