Subsequently he worked at Benjamin Levich Institute, New York as a post-doctoral fellow. Dr. Joshi joined IIT Kanpur in July 2004. Prof. Joshi is a recipient of numerous awards including NASI Scopus Young Scientist Award (2012), DAE-SRC Outstanding Investigator Award (2012), Amar Dye Chem Award (2009), INAE Young Engineer award (2008) and INSA medal for young scientist (2006). He is a life member of National Academy of Sciences India (2012), an Associate of Indian National Academy of Engineering (2013-2019) and was an Associate of Indian Academy of Sciences (2006 - 2009). Prof. Joshi has served as a visiting faculty in Universite du Maine, France (2008) and as a INSA visiting scientist in University of Edinburgh UK (2010). He has over 50 research publications in international journals and has given over 50 lectures/invited talks in India and abroad. His current research interests are thixotropy, rheological behavior of glasses and gels, phase behavior clay suspensions, and electrorheology. Prof. Sameer Khandekar is affiliated to the Department of Mechanical Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur, India, since September 2004. Prof. Khandekar completed Masters Degree from IIT Kanpur, India in 2000 with specialization in fluid-thermal engineering and subsequently earned doctoral degree from the University of Stuttgart, Germany (2000-2004). Earlier, after his undergraduate studies in Mechanical Engineering from Government Engineering College, Jabalpur (MP) in 1993, he worked as a marine power plant engineer on board sea-going merchant vessels for four years (1994-1998). Prof. Khandekar is a recipient of P. K. Kelkar Research Fellowship (IIT Kanpur; 2008-2011)), DAAD Fellowship (2011), Prof. K. N. Seetharamu Award (Indian Society of Heat and Mass Transfer, 2010), George Grover Medal (International Heat Pipe Committee, 2007) and Young Scientist Award (Department of Atomic Energy, India, 2005). He is a member of the International Heat Pipe Committee since 2008 and editorial board member of two international journals on science and technology of heat pipes. He has served as an academic senate member of one centrally funded institute and one state funded autonomous engineering institute. Prof. Khandekar has also served as an international invited faculty member at four universities in Germany, France, Brazil and Thailand. He has over 50 research publications in international journals and over sixty publications in international conferences, including 15 keynote lectures/invited talks. His current research interests are in experimental microscale phase-change passive thermo-fluidic systems, boiling and condensation, pulsating heat pipes and energy systems.

Sian Spinney

Ever purchased a book, read a few pages & thought I'm not going to enjoy this? Honest book reviews mean you'll never have that problem again

Jill Peters

They are bright, breezy and eager to offer a great book, then genuinely listen/respect the review one writes.

Maggie Crane

As for why I'd recommend Lovereading, it's simple - it's a great place to get information and reviews about new books!
