Research Interest Multiphase flow, Spray & Atomization, CFD, Thermodynamics


My current research activities are in the broad field of multiphase flow with heat and mass transfer. Emphasis will be on computational work with supporting experimental studies. I would like to classify my research work in two categories: (a) develop numerical techniques that can be efficiently used to simulate multiphase flow and (b) use the techniques to study real life engineering problems. Some of the current research projects being carried out within my research group are Liquid Spray & Atomization, Two-Phase CFD solver on GPU platform, Single and Multiple Droplet Evaporation, Automotive Fuel Tank Sloshing, Flow Boiling in Micro-channels, etc.
