I am currently a Research Fellow in the Center for Computational Biology (CCB) at Flatiron Institute, New York. I am part of the Biophysical Modeling group where I am mentored by Prof. Michael Shelley. I primarily work on developing theoretical and computational tools to study fluid-structure interactions in Stokes flow relevant for various biophysical problems.
Before joining Flatiron, I obtained my bachelor's in Mechanical Engineering from Jadavpur University, Kolkata, India where I also grew up. Subsequently, I completed my MS in Engineering Mechanics from Virginia Tech, USA working with Prof. James Hanna and my Ph.D. from the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at UC San Diego where I was advised by Prof. David Saintillan.
A bit more about me! I am passionate about Hindustani classical music, an avid listener, and learned 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.
