Dr Buragohain has well over two decades of hands-on experience in design and development of composite products. His primary research interests are in the fields of geodesic and non-geodesic filament winding, tape winding, rosette lay-up and contact lay-up. Some of his major contributions have been in large size composite pressure vessels, grid-stiffened composite structures, tubular structures, ablative liners, and composite rotor blade. He has several journal and conference publications to his credit and he is a life member of Indian Society for Advancement of Materials and Process Engineering (ISAMPE) and Aeronautical Society of India (AeSI). His contributions to the field of composites have been well recognized and he was awarded Laboratory Scientist of the Year Award, National Science Day Commendation Certificate & Silicon Medal, DRDO Award for Performance Excellence as a team member, and Agni Award for Excellence in Self-reliance as team leader.
