Hari is a Research Fellow in the Department of Bioengineering at Imperial College London. He did his undergraduate studies 2004-2008 in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, where he also later completed his PhD titled "Blast loading of fibre reinforced polymer composite structures".
His current research interests are focussed on lung mechanics, working within the Centre for Blast Injury Studies. This involves both macro- and micro-scale evaluation of thoracic structural response to blast. The aim of the research is to improve the understanding of underlying failure mechanisms occurring within the lungs to improve both the injury treatment and injury prevention.
Other research interests include:
- Full-scale explosive resilience evaluation of structures in air and underwater
- Development of novel experimental techniques and numerical models to optimise the design of blast and ballistic resistant materials
- Development of macro- and micro-scale finite element models to predict deformation and fracture behaviour of various structural and biological materials under a range of strain conditions
- Extension and validation of micromechanics analytical models for application in the design of composite materials
