Head of the Department

Dr. Pallavi Badry completed Bachelor degree in Civil Engineering from Visvesvaraya National Institute of Technology, Nagpur and Integrated M.S. Ph.D in Geo-technical Earthquake Engineering from IIIT Hyderabad. Her expertise in research bench-marked with 35 technical papers in indexed journal and in National and International peer reviewed conferences, from her PhD work in a specialized area of soil structure interaction of a symmetrical building and in an extended research in the same.

Since 2016 she guided around 15 undergraduate engineers for their degree project. She has presented a few papers, and delivered invited lectures in conferences at IIT Mumbai, IGC Kochi etc. to publish her research and served as a resource person for several Faculty Development programs within the state. She delivered a invited lectures in several short courses conducted at IIITH, any contacts with SRKR college of engineering (Bhimavaram) and CRHRDI for trainee engineers from Govt. of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh on safety and Geo-technical aspects of design of superstructures. She is very active and proficient faculty member handling the course for B.Tech and M.Tech with a very efficient and innovative way.Under her guidance the students have developed a shake table model which is awarded as the “Best Project” at the NCCE’17.
