I work in the area of Computational fluid dynamics. Currently, I am pursuing PhD from IIT-Bombay which is expected to be completed in this year (i.e., 2021). My top skills are CFD simulations using ANSYS-Fluent and OpenFoam. I am currently working on exploring flight dynamics of a dragonfly numerically (using OpenFoam, Ansys-Fluent) and experimentally (using particle image velocimetry, flow visualization). The motivation behind study is to develop micro aerial vehicle.
