Hari graduated from the Erasmus Mundus Joint Master programme in Tribology in 2016 and is currently a doctoral candidate at Luleå University of Technology. Hari's research involves the 'Development of hybrid composites for tribological applications in extreme conditions'. A major part of the research deals with UHMWPE and water based lubrication. Other scientific interests include additive manufacturing, polymer processing and carbon based nano-materials.
