Meet India’s Young Thermal Spray Technocrat | Dr. Satish Tailor

Dr. Satish Tailor is working as Chief Scientist and Head-R&D; General Manager-Research & Development (GM-R&D) at Metallizing Equipment Co. Pvt. Ltd. Jodhpur. In this role, Dr. Tailor is leading and supporting ongoing research and development activities and assisting to improve the company’s established Thermal Spray products. He handles all the international research projects. At present his focus is on SOFC, high-temperature resistance coatings; high hardness & low porosity; corrosion and wear resistance; and high strength applications. The development of new and novel thermal spray coatings for various industrial applications would be a target to fulfill the current gaps. Dr. Tailor’s leadership and research experience spanning a broad range of advanced thermal spray coatings, materials for thermal spray including oxides, metal, ceramics, and composite powders. He has more than 8 years of thermal spray coating experience in research & development as a principal scientist. Among his career highlights, Dr. Tailor associates with the Journal of Materials Science and Surface Engineering [JMSSE] and Journal of Thermal Spray and Engineering [JTSE] as Chief Editor and is also a Reviewer of many repute journals. He associates as a Young Scientist position with the National University of Scientist and Technology (NUST) “MISiS”, Moscow, Russia; He did his Ph.D. (2013) in Metallurgical Engineering with a specialization in Plasma Spray Coatings from Malaviya National Institute of Technology, Jaipur, India. As he has established a track record in R&D by successfully completing many projects, he is delivering solutions to customers through novel coating developments and new materials design. He has published many national and international research papers in repute journals on thermal spray technology. He is an active candidate in all international conferences based on thermal spray worldwide. Recently, NASA has shown interest in his work, and the news got published in prestigious news agencies around the world.

Inkpothub: You are the founder of “INDIAN THERMAL SPRAY SOCIETY”. What is your vision or goal(s) you want to achieve with this society?

Dr. Satish: Our goal: organizing the exchange of information on thermal spraying in India as well as at world level.  The Indian Thermal Spray Society, The ITSS is a regional society but the members are not limited to the Indian. Welcome to all the people who devote thermal spraying to join us. The main mission of the ITSS is to promote the advancements of research & developments and industrial applications of thermal spray technology in India as well as in the world through establishing information exchange platform (Workshops, meetings, and conferences) and involvements of experienced professionals and young researchers and students in thermal spray R&D. We hope that ITSS will provide a platform to bring regularly all researchers involved in R&D, technicians in thermal spray job shops, manufacturers of thermal spray materials and equipment, managers of the companies involving in thermal spraying in India to share the latest advancements of thermal spray technology. ITSS is managed by the Board of Delegates, composed of members. Board of Delegates represents key Indian universities, research centers, and companies involved in thermal spraying, performing research, and producing feedstock, equipment, and coatings on Indian and international level. The institutions represented by the delegates gather together hundreds of scientists and engineers dedicated to R&D activities dedicated to base research, applied research, equipment and application development, problem-solving in the field of thermal spraying, materials science, and engineering, etc.


Inkpothub: What benefits Universities can enjoy through collaborating with Industries/Companies or vice-versa?

Dr. Satish: Thank you for this question. Educational institutions need to collaborate with industries and should address the industry realtime problems. Both can be benefited from each other. Institutions may use State of art experimental facilities, infrastructure and can use the experience of industry personal in their research. The industry also will get benefited by solving research problems by institute researchers. But Both should need to work together. The industry also provides an opportunity for students to do an internship and allow to learn in-depth with the hands of experiments. Industry- academia should work together. 


Inkpothub: You run a Facebook group -“Research Scholar (Ph.D./PostDoc)” with more than 60k members. It’s a very big community indeed. What impact do you wish to create with this research group?

Dr. Satish: The idea of this FB grp “Research Scholar (Ph.D./Postdoc) is very simple, a platform to provide Ph.D./postdoc, research fellow openings around the world. Also about research jobs, faculty positions, and online free available courses. Anyone who is interested in research may join this group.

People also exchange their research ideas, discuss, and get benefited. People also find new collaborators for their research projects. Soon I will have one lakh members.

Inkpothub: Any message you would like to give to aspiring scholars to do path-breaking research?

Dr. Satish: Well I’m not so much experienced person to guide young scholars but just want to say few points. 

  • research wants dedication and patience
  • always keep updating yourself
  • read as much as possible on your research
  • relax then think
  • do not stop at your first achievement, do more…
  • try to deliver something to your society/nation through your research
