•Department of Atomic Energy Senior Fellowship(B).
•Dept. of Atomic Energy Technical Excellence Group Achievement:Design & Development of Roof Slab for PFBR, 2010.
•Dept. of Atomic Energy Technical Excellence Group Achievement:Group Leader for Developing Cost Effective Novel Shield Material Ferroboron,2011.
•Working on Development of alternate shield material in fast reactors which brought down the cost of shielding substantially without compromising safety.
•Led a team in planning and analysis of the experiments of neutron attenuation in shield materials such as Ferro-boron and B4C. The results
confirmed Ferro-boron as a good shield material.
•The Pade approximations developed for Doppler Broadening Functions are being used by many experimental activation analyses to take care of
temperature dependent self shielding corrections
