    INSTRUCTOR BIO

    Prof. Saderla Subrahmanyam

    IIT Kanpur
    Dr. Subrahmanyam Saderla obtained his B.Tech (Aeronautical Engineering) from JNTU, Hyderabad in 2008, M.Tech and Ph.D (Aerospace Engineering) from IIT Kanpur during 2010 and 2015 respectively. Later he joined as a postdoctoral fellow in the department of aerospace and software engineering at Gyeongsang National University (GNU), South Korea. At present he is working as an assistant professor in the department of aerospace engineering at Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur. His current area of interest lies in real time system identification of unmanned aerial vehicles. His research interests also include design, flight tests and parameter estimation, high angle of attack aerodynamic modelling and dynamic wind tunnel testing as well as experimental flight dynamics, chaotic modelling using Artificial Neural Networks.
