About me

I am Assistant Professor at the Department of Mechanical Engineering in Indian Institute of Technology Guwahati, Guwahati, Assam, India since January 2020. I am a part of Thermal and Fluid Science group here in IITG.

I received my Ph.D. from Department of Mechanical Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology Bombay, Mumbai under the guidance of Professor Upendra V. Bhandarkar in 2018. My Ph.D. was on development of ab-initio based chemical reaction model implemented in Direct Simulation Monte Carlo (DSMC) code for understanding high enthalpy flow around a re-entry vehicle at rarefied ambient conditions.
