Biography

I am a research associate working with Prof. Eric Lauga in the Biological Physics & Mechanics group at Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics, located in picturesque Cambridge. I am also a member of the postdoctoral society at Trinity College, Cambridge.

On a broad level, my interest lies in decoding the mysteries in nature fuelled by curious observation. Specifically, these interests include problems in complex fluids, microfluidics, multiphase flows, electrohydrodynamics, active matter, microorganisms locomotion. Most of my work is motivated by simple observations in nature or experiments in laboratory that can be explained by the help of applied mathematics and numerical simulations.

You can find more details of my work in the research and publications page. Please feel free to drop me an email for potential collaborations, discussing interesting projects and ideas or if you have any comments on my research work.
