I am an Associate Research Scholar at Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering in Princeton University. My primary research interests are three folds: (1) Dynamics of liquid droplets and jets, (2) Propagation and ignition of laminar and turbulent flames and (3) Diagnostic techniques useful for droplet and flame studies.
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 Depratment 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 was awarded with 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.
