Welcome to my homepage! I am a faculty member in the Discipline of Mechanical Engineering at IIT Gandhinagar. I teach a variety of courses in the domain of thermofluid sciences such as Fluid Mechanics, Heat and Mass Transfer, Aircraft and Rocket Propulsion, Combustion, and CFD. My students and I work together to characterize energetic materials for propulsion and energy-conversion applications. We work on developing a diverse set of models, ranging from atomistic/molecular scales (to predict fundamental thermodynamic and transport properties) to macro-scales (to study macroscopic processes such as heat transfer, combustion/propulsion) as well as experimental characterization of combustion and propulsive performances. Please do explore my website and feel free to contact me should you have any questions.

We have multiple openings for PhD students and we are looking for bright and motivated students to join our group. Please do write to me in case you have any questions.
