About Me

Postdoctoral Associate
Massachusetts Institute of Technology

I am currently working with Prof. Karen Willcox in Department of Aeronautics & Astronautics at Massachusetts Institute of Technology on multifidelity methods, optimization under uncertainty, uncertainty quantification, feedback coupled multi-physics systems and Monte Carlo methods. I am an Full Member of AIAA Non-Deterministic Approaches Technical Committee.

I started my academic journey with receiving my Bachelor of Technology in Mechanical Engineering from Malaviya National Institute of Technology, Jaipur, India in 2008. I earned my Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering from University of Florida in 2010 with research on uncertainty analysis of spur gear response and life cycle of a spur gear based on wear propagation under Prof. Nam Ho Kim. After, I continued as a Doctoral student under Prof. Raphael T. Haftka at University of Florida as a part of the Structural & Multidisciplinary Optimization Group. My doctoral research topics were “Surrogate based Global Optimization” and "Experimental Optimization and Uncertainty Analysis". I received my PhD in Mechanical Engineering in December, 2014.

My research interests include multifidelity methods, uncertainty quantification, design under uncertainty, reliability analysis and numerical optimization.
