Research Focus

Dr Shalini Mohanty graduated from Odisha University of Technology and Research (formerly College of Engineering and Technology), India with First Class in Mechanical Engineering (Bachelors in Technology) in 2013. She subsequently completed her Masters from KIIT University, India with First Class in Mechanical Engineering (Masters in Technology) in the laboratory of Prof Bharat Chandra Routara and Dr Basanta Kumar Nanda in 2016. During her MTech, she was working on development of metal matrix composites and assessment of their machining charateristics using powder mixed electrical discharge machining. Later she completed her PhD from Inidan Institute of Technology (Indian School of Mines) Dhanbad, India in the laboratory of Prof Alok Kumar Das and Prof Amit Rai Dixit, while working on surface modification of titanium based alloys through powder mixed micro-electrical discharge process. During her course, she developed a keen interest in coatings while working in different projects. She worked as a Consultant in the same institute until March 2022 for a project on micro-electrochemical discharge machining in the same laboratory.

In June 2022, Shalini relocated to Tallinn, Estonia to continue her research journey in metallic coatings through additive manufacturing, joining the laboratory of Prof Prashanth Konda Gokuldoss in the School of Mechanical & Industrial Engineering at Tallinn University of Technology as a Researcher (3D Printing Specialist). During this time, she worked on metallic coatings produced through selective laser melting and spark plasma sintering techniques. She gained experience in different surface characterization methods during this time. 

Shalini later joined Queen's University Belfast, Northern Ireland, UK in March 2023 to take up a Research Fellow position in the laboratory of Prof Adrian Murphy in the School of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering. Furthering her research in surface modifications, she is now working on metallic and polymer based funtionalised coatings for underwater and aerospace applications.
