     Educational Background/Employment:
    • Bachelor of Science (Physics) (2009) , Presidency College, Calcutta University, Kolkata, India
    • Master of Science (Physics) (2011) Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi, India
    • Ph.D. (Physics) (2016) Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, India (advisor: Professor Rahul Pandit)

    Research Interests:

      I strive to understand the phenomenology of mixing of multiple fluids, using theory and simulations. I currently investigate the mixing of two quiescent fluids and the resultant transition to turbulence using turbulence models. Previously I have characterized the kinetic and the dynamic properties of droplets in a turbulent medium and uncovered the laws that govern their shape fluctuations, using Direct Numerical Simulations of the Navier-Stokes Equations.
