He enrolled in the Department of Civil Engineering at National Institute of Technology Hamirpur (Himachal Pradesh), India (2013) to pursue his Master of Technology in Geotechnical Engineering and Underground Structures. In 2015, he successfully obtained his master's in Geotechnical Engineering and Underground Structures. In 2015, he joined as an Assistant Professor and made himself committed to work with the Department of Civil Engineering, Teerthanker Mahaveer University, Moradabad for 1.5 years, and later on switched to IMS Engineering College, Ghaziabad (2017) and Gautam Buddha University, Greater Noida (2017). In 2018, he joined Geo Spar Infra- A specialized Indian Geo-Engineering Company as a Geotechnical Engineer and Maccaferri Environmental Solution Pvt. Ltd. as Senior Geotechnical Design Engineer - MNC/ Italian based company having sister concern and headquarter in Gurgaon. At present, he is an Assistant Professor at THDC Institute of Hydropower Engineering and Technology, Tehri Garhwal, Uttrakhand, India. He is an active professional member of the Institute for Engineering Research and Publication. He is an Editorial Board member for the International Journal of Recent Advances in Science & Technology.  

He is very much passionate toward the queries raised from students across Globe and looking forward to the several assignments posed by students at various levels (UG and PG) worldwide in the field of complexities arose in completing their Questionnaire Assignments, Thesis and Projects guidance, Software assignments, Online classes, Research Proposal, etc.
