I am pursuing a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering along with a Graduate Minor in Computer Science.

I am working on development and application of Computational Fluid Dynamics methods for the purpose of studying two phase flows. I am currently focussed on studying liquid sprays in gas (fuel injection in IC engines). These flows are ubiquitous and people have spent decades studying them but fundamental understanding of the underlying mechanisms is surprisingly limited. By employing high accuracy methods along with highly resolved grids, we are obtaining new insights into these flows.
