Ashim Khadka is currently pursuing his Masters in Automotive Systems Engineering at Kettering University. He is a Graduate Research Assistant and has been conducting research in vibration in Experimental Mechanics and NVH lab under the guidance of Dr. Javad Baqersad since 2017. He completed his degree in Mechanical Engineering from Tribhuvan University, Kathmandu, Nepal. He has taken part in various national and international robotics competitions during his involvement at Robotics & Automation Center in his undergraduate studies.
His research includes strain expansion, vibration of rotating components, structural dynamics, structural health monitoring and, testing and validation. He has worked in correlating the contact (impact hammer, strain gauge, accelerometers) and non-contact (Digital image correlation and photogrammetry) methods of vibration. He is currently carrying out research in structural health monitoring of wind turbines using cameras and benefits of remote access through drones.
