Summary

 

Summary

Harshit is a Research Assistant in the Mineral, Energy and Environmental Engineering Research Group in the Department of Earth Science and Engineering at Imperial College London. He has around seven years of research and consulting experience. His research focusses on coupled numerical modelling and heterogeneity modelling, to optimise underground coal mining and coal gasification layouts. He has expertise in setting-up and performing industry-relevant laboratory experiments to determine the mechanical and reservoir properties of coal and rock. 

Background

Harshit is currently pursuing his PhD from Imperial College London. He has a Master of Technology in Mine Safety Engineering from Academy of Scientific and Innovative Research, (AcSIR), New Delhi, India and a Bachelor of Technology in Mining Engineering (First position and Institute Silver Medalist) from National Institute of Technology (NIT), Rourkela, Odisha, India.

Harshit was working as a Scientist at Council of Scientific and Industrial Research - Central Institute of Mining and Fuel Research (CSIR-CIMFR), India before joining Imperial College London. He has executed 13 industry-sponsored research projects optimising underground coal production by designing safe mining layouts. Prior to this, he worked in a technical consulting firm conducting safety audit and risk assessment of mines.
