Ph.D. Student

Department of Mechanical Engineering,

IISc Bengaluru

Research Interest:  Flame dynamics, Fluid Mechanics, Vortex flows, Droplet dynamic

Introduction:​ I did my B. Tech in BITS-Pilani Hyderabad campus in Mechanical Engineering and joined IISc in August 2018. I am currently working on a fundamental study involved in the combustion of moving droplets of conventional and nanoparticle-laden fuels.

Research Areas: Droplet Combustion, Nanofuels

Research summary: Droplet combustion is the fundamental building block of spray combustion which is the major mode of combustion in the majority of the applications spanning across different domains. The study of fundamental physics involved at the droplet level can give insight into the physical mechanisms involved locally, which then can be incorporated into the spray combustion models
