Professional History

Funded by the VR international postdoc grant, I am employed by KTH as a visiting postdoctoral researcher in the complex fluids group of Prof. Howard Stone at Princeton University.

Research and Professional Activities

I develop and utilize a variety of computational tools to investigate the flow phenomenon. Now I am interested in the problems involving fluid-structure interactions at low Reynolds number, micro-multiphase flow and droplet-based microfluidics.
