Biography:

I am an Associate Research Scholar at Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering in Princeton University. My primary research interests are (1) Dynamics of liquid droplets and jets and (2) Propagation and ignition of laminar and turbulent flames. 

I received my B.E. (Bachelor of Engineering) in Mechanical Engineering from Jadavpur University, India in 2006. After that, I joined Tata Motors (India's largest automobile company), where I was Asst. Manager from 2006 to 2007. Following the brief industrial experience, in 2008 I started my graduate studies at the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering in University of Central Florida. I received M.S. and Ph.D. degrees, both in Mechanical Engineering, in 2010 and 2012, respectively. I received the Outstanding Dissertation Award for the quality, content and exemplary nature of my PhD research. Since 2012, I have been part of Prof. Chung K Law's research group at Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department in Princeton University, where at presents I hold the rank of Associate Research Scholar.
