Sneha Rupa Nampally received her bachelor’s and master’s degree in mechanical engineering from Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur in 2017 under the dual degree program. Her master’s degree specializes in Mechanical Systems Design. The focus of her bachelor’s and master’s thesis was mainly on the theoretical analysis of smart materials. During her studies, she also worked as a research assistant at the University of Alberta in Canada through the UARE Scholarship. There, she studied the effect of various parameters of ultrasound signals on the prevalence of osteoporosis in different age-groups.
From 2017 to September 2020, Sneha worked at Eaton India Innovation Center as a Structural Mechanics Engineer. She developed expertise in predicting safety of components from structural point of view by using the finite element method. She also has experience in the application of Six Sigma principles for product design, mainly in the areas of power management and automotive systems.
In November 2020, Sneha joined IMS as a research assistant in the group of General Vibration Systems. She is working in the H2020 European Project “LIVE-I” under the Marie-Curie ITN program for industrial doctorates. Her task involves the development of an active system for vibration reduction, whilst focusing on smart integration of the system into lightweight transmissions.
