Dr. Ankit Gupta received his doctoral degree from Indian Institute of Technology Mandi and M.Tech degree in CAD/CAM and Robotics from Indian Institute of Technology Roorkee. His research interest involves deformation theory, composite structures, structural response and Imperfection sensitivity. In particular, he has made contributions to the development of nonpolynomial higher-order shear and normal deformation theory for the structural response of FGM structures. He has published more than 22 papers in referred journals and conference proceedings. His one of the paper has been acknowledged by the Elsevier as top 25 downloaded and top cited paper. He has also presented several papers in International conferences. He is also an invited reviewer of several international journals such as Archives of Civil and Mechanical Engineering (Elsevier), International Journal of Mechanical Engineering, etc. He has also served as a Conference advisor/ Technical Committee member/Reviewer in several International conferees held in India and Abroad. He is also a member of American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME).
