    BioI received my PhD from Iowa State University co-majoring in Mechanical engineering and Applied Mathematics. I was co-advised by Dr. Baskar Ganapathysubramanian and Dr. James Rossmanith. For my dissertation I worked on development and analysis of numerical schemes for high fidelity simulations of multiphase flows. Specifically I developed energy stable numerical methods to simulate two-phase flows using Cahn-Hilliard Navier-Stokes equations. I also have experience in development of tools to analyse and understand complex physical processes like multi-phase flows and turbulence. Before joining Iowa State for my graduate work, I had a brief stint as a research associate in Dr. Krishnaswamy Nandakumar‘s group in Louisiana State University (LSU). At LSU I worked on developing theoretical models for energy cascades in multi-phase flows.
