Research Fellow, University of Warwick

I am currently working in the Mathematics Institute at the University of Warwick (Coventry, UK) with Dr James Sprittles. Prior to joining here, I was a Research Scientist at Technion-Israel Institute of Technology (Haifa, Israel). I have worked with Professor Alex Leshansky, Professor Gilad Yossifon and Professor Ehud Yariv during my stay in Technion.  I received PhD in Engineering at Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur (India) under the supervisions of Professor Gautam Biswas (Director at IIT Guwahati) and Professor P.S. Ghoshdastidar. During PhD , I studied the dynamics of bubble formation and rising bubbles in quiescent and co-flowing liquids from submerged orifices, and I was fortunate to visit and work with Professor Franz Durst for few months in Institute of Fluid Mechanics (LSTM) at University of Erlangen (Nuremberg, Germany). After finishing PhD, I joined as a Postdoctoral Researcher in Fluid Mechanics Group at Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (Spain); with Professor Alejandro Sevilla, Professor Javier Rodriguez-Rodriguez and Professor Jose Manuel Gordillo (Universidad de Sevilla).

On a broad level, my research interests lie in fluid mechanics, heat transfer, computational fluid dynamics, computational modeling of incompressible and weakly compressible two-phase flows with surface tension based on interface capturing procedures, droplet-based microfluidics and boiling heat transfer. Specifically, these interests include the fundamental understanding of the dynamics of bubbles, drops, bubble oscillations and moving interfaces. Most of my work is motivated by developing an accurate and robust numerical model that can be required as a feasible computational tool to complement both experiment and theory.

More information about my research and publications can be found on my Google Scholar and ResearchGate pages.
