    Personal profile


    Latha has joined Coventry University as Research Assistant in Mechanical Automotive and Manufacturing department, working in collaboration with GKN Autostructures Limited, for Hybrid power Gyrodrive project.

    Previously, Latha was awarded full scholarship (by EPSRC) and has successfully completed her PhD research in Fire retardant composites for Marine applications at the University of Bolton and is now in the process of submitting her dissertation. Besides her research she has also served as Technical consultant for the partnership companies involved in the project in the UK. Latha also holds M. Tech in Fibre Science Technology (with distinction) from reputed Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) and her project involved in developing Nanoclay Composite Fibres.

    Latha’s research experience includes working as Senior Executive in Business Research and Development for a multinational company (SRF Limited) in India. During her tenure, she developed heat resistant nano composite fibres for tyre cord applications.

    Following the completion of B. Tech in Textile technology (with distinction) from Bharathiar University, she worked as Lecturer in Apparel and Fashion Technology at Sona College of Technology, India for a period of three years.

    Besides her field experience, she has also published and presented papers in various national and international seminars and journals.

    Area of Expertise:

    Fire retardant fibre-reinforced composite materials, nano composite fibres, technical textile materials, thermoset resins and thermoplastic materials.

    Vision Statement

    My main research area of interest is on the development of novel fibre-reinforced composite materials for special applications. Through my research, I aim to develop an advanced composite material for flywheel application to regenerate the braking energy in city buses and contribute towards reduced energy consumption. This collaborative research hopes to significantly contribute towards reducing fuel poverty besides being cost effective. I also envisage establishing a composite material laboratory to carry out extensive research in the field of composite materials at Coventry University.
