I am a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Stanford University in the Prakash Lab at the Department of Bioengineering.

I was previously a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Physics of Fluids Group at the University of Twente, The Netherlands, supervised by Professor Detlef Lohse and Professor Chao Sun. I was recently awarded a PhD in Applied Physics for my thesis on 'Light particles in turbulence'I am primarily an experimentalist, and worked in the Twente Water Tunnel facility at the University of Twente, which is a unique experimental setup designed to study multi-phase flow. 

I obtained an M.S. in Engineering Mechanics at the Jawaharlal Nehru Centre for Advanced Scientific Research (JNCASR), Bangalore, India. My master thesis research was on laboratory modelling of mantle convection. My research was supervised jointly by Professor K. R. Sreenivas at the Engineering Mechanics Unit, JNCASR and Professor Jaywant H. Arakeri at the Department of Mechanical Engineering, Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, India.

Previously, I received a B.E. in Mechanical Engineering from R. V. College of Engineering, Bangalore, India.
