Hi, I am a graduate student in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). I am a part of the MSEAS (Multidisciplinary Simulation, Estimation, and Assimilation Systems) Group at MIT, advised by Prof. Pierre Lermusiaux. Here is my curriculum vitae.

I obtained my Master's degree in Mechanical Engineering from MIT in 2017. Prior to joining MIT, I spent four wonderful years at the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay (IIT Bombay), where I was awarded the Institute Silver Medal for being the most outstanding student in the Mechanical Engineering Department.



My primary interests lie in stochastic and non-linear dynamics, model order reduction and numerical methods. For my Master's thesis, I worked on time-optimal path planning for autonomous agents in three-dimensional realistic environments. I am currently working on methods for fast, accurate and reliable computation of coherent sets and structures in fluid flows.


At IIT Bombay, I worked on various projects such as modeling of two-phase magneto-hydrodynamic (MHD) flows and experimental study of mono-propellant droplet combustion. I also worked at Virginia Tech (USA) on Vertical Axis Wind Turbines (VAWTs) and at the University of Paderborn (Germany) on Monte-Carlo Methods during the summers of 2013 and 2014 respectively.


One of the activites I enjoy the most is drumming. I also cherish the long discussions with friends and colleagues ranging from jet engines to world economy.
