In 2007 Anand joined Oxford Brookes University, in academic role, in the department of mechanical engineering and mathematical sciences. He teaches introductory and advanced vibration analysis, NVH and a few topics in vehicle crash engineering and numerical simulations. His research interests cover a range of topics in both lower and higher frequency vibrations and acoustics.

Anand graduated in 1993 with MTech (Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur, India) in mechanical engineering and later in 2003 with a PhD in Sound and Vibration (Institute of Sound and Vibration Research, University of Southampton). Between 1994 and 1999, he worked as an NVH engineer with a major automotive manufacturer in India where the responsibilities included numerical, experimental and classical design aspects. He led a team working on quieter gear train design and manufacturing. Between 2002 and 2007 at ISVR, University of Southampton, he worked as a Research Fellow on a project funded by the Leverhulme Trust to research mid and high frequency vibrations, and as a Ford Research Fellow researching IC engine sound radiation.
