Dr. G. Selvakumar obtained his B.E. (Mechanical Engineering) degree with distinction from National Engineering College, Kovilpatti (Manonmaniam Sundaranar University, Tirunelveli) in 1999. He completed his M.E. (Computer Aided Design) degree also with distinction in 2003 from Government College of Engineering, Salem (Periyar University, Salem). He completed his Ph.D. degree from Jadavpur University, Kolkata, India in 2013. His Ph.D. thesis was titled ‘Analysis and Optimization of Die Corner Accuracy in Wire Electrical Discharge Machining (WEDM)’.

His area of interest includes advanced manufacturing systems and decision technology.

Presently 8 Ph.D. scholars of Anna University, Chennai are pursuing research under his supervision.  He has published 7 international journal papers, edited 1 book and 10 conference papers. He has around 13 + years of teaching experience in Engineering colleges and 6 + years of research experience. He was the secretary of ‘Society for Manufacturing Engineers’ for 3 years and associate editor of ‘Journal of Manufacturing Engineering’ for 2.5 years.

 He is a reviewer of international Journals published by Springer and Emerald. He has organized one international conference titled ‘Recent Advances in Material Processing Technology (RAMPT: 2009)’ and a TNSCST sponsored program on ‘‘Science and Technology capacity building for industrial needs’. He has delivered invited talk in FDTP and other sponsored programs.
