Sashikant Nayak

Assistant Professor

Sashikant Nayak has three years of experience in teaching and about eight years in research. Sashikant received his B.Sc. (Hons.) degree in Mathematics from Ravenshaw College, Cuttack and M.Sc. in Mathematics National Institute of Technology Rourkela. He received his Ph.D. degree in Ocean Engineering (ocean wave studies) from Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur in July, 2013. He has about 4 years of post-doctoral research experience from Texas A&M University (at Qatar, TAMUQ, 2013-2016) and University of Malaya, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia (2017-2018).

Here in KSBT and KSCT, he is involved in teaching engineering mathematics to first and second year of B.Tech classes.
