I am currently a PhD student at the Microscale Flow Modeling group in the department of
Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at UC San Diego where I am advised by Prof. David Saintillan. I primarily work on
developing theoretical and computational tools to study fluid-structure interactions in Stokes flow.
Prior to La Jolla, I obtained my bachelor in Mechanical Engineering from Jadavpur University, in the vibrant
and beautiful city of Kolkata (Calcutta), India where I also grew up. Subsequently I completed my MS in
Engineering Mechanics from Virginia Tech, USA where I worked with Prof. James Hanna
on equilibria of strings and dynamical systems.
A bit more about me! I am passionate about Hindustani classical music, an avid listener
and learnt Tabla while growing up. More recently I have been learning
Sarod, a fretless Indian string instrument. Besides this, I am
interested in scientific data visualization, graphics, science outreach and enjoy teaching.
