Dr. Rajlakshmi Nayak is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering since March 2018. She is having a SERB Grant under TARE fellowship, a research grant of Rs. 5 lakhs per annum. She is a visiting scholar of MNIT Jaipur. Currently, she is working on research on Energy conservation, computational fluid dynamics and microfluidics. At JKLU she is involved in developing  many courses across disciplines, based on pedagogy Project-based learning. Coursed like calculus and Applied Mechanics, Design and prototyping and Computational Engineering Analysis are a few of them.

She received Doctorate from Indian Institute of Technology Madras, Chennai. She worked with multiphase flow characteristics in microchannel T-junction. She received her M.Tech from NIT Rourkela, where she worked on enhancing the insulating property of composite materials. She has one sponsored research grant and 20 publications which include 7 journals and 13 Conferences both International and national.
