K Nanda Kishore, PhD student in the School of Engineering Sciences and Technology (SEST) working under the supervision of Prof. Koteswararao V. Rajulapati, attended an international conference titled “Seventh International Indentation Workshop (IIW7)” held at the University of Hyderabad, India and received the “best poster presentation award”.

Nanda Kishore presented a poster on the research topic, “Understanding the mechanical properties of Multi-Phase CoCrFeNiW High-Entropy Alloy Using Micro- and Nanoindentation”, in which using the high-speed nanoindentation technique he contributed to a better understanding of the mechanical properties of individual phases in the CoCrFeNiW high-entropy alloy, allowing for the tailoring and optimization of its mechanical behaviour vis-à-vis relative phase fractions of this alloy.

Nanda Kishore is immensely grateful to the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. B. J. Rao; Dean-SEST, Prof. Jai Prakash Gautam; Institution of Eminence program and organizers of the IIW7 workshop for all the kind support that enabled him to interact with the world’s best minds in the workshop working in his research area.
