Teaching and Research Interests: My teaching and research activities focus on analytical, experimental, and numerical methods in thermo-fluids. My teaching and educational goals are to help students build a strong foundation in basic concepts, and equip them with state-of-the-art engineering tools that are used to solve real-world problems. My research goal is to develop computational fluid dynamics (CFD) models to predict multi-phase turbulent reacting flows in complex geometries to study the efficiency and environmental impact of energy conversion technologies. Further details are available on my Teaching, Research and Publications pages.

Bio: I received B.E. in Mechanical Engineering from Guru Nanak Dev Engineering College , Ludhiana in 2000, M.S. in Mechanical Engineering from University of Alabama in 2002, and Mechanical Engineering from University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2006. During Ph.D, I worked at Sandia National Labs-California as a visiting researcher from August 2004 to March 2005. From October 2006 to January 2010, I worked as a senior researcher in General Motors Research and Development in Warren, MI.
