Dr. Bhowmik received his Ph.D. on the topic of real-time condition monitoring of built infrastructure systems. The problem was motivated by the paucity of literature in this field. His recent work in the topic addressed this gap through theoretical developments, numerical simulations, and experimentation. Overall his work established and advanced the field of real-time detection through a comprehensive treatment of first-order perturbation systems. Dr. Bhowmik currently works as a Postdoctoral Associate in the School of Mechanical and Materials Engineering. He is involved in an SEAI funded project, 'WindPearl', with the primary responsibility of early and accurate prediction of downtime in wind turbines. Dr. Bhowmik was previously employed as a senior mechanical developer at Siemens, AG Ltd., India where he was responsible for determining the fatigue life of turbine blades and vanes using probabilistic approaches.
