S. Krishna Kumar
Post-Doctoral Researcher, IISc Bangalore & a Ph.D. from IIT Madras, Chennai, India.
Currently, I work on nonlinear dynamical analysis of climate models, with an eye on bifurcations involved in climate phenomena.
In my Ph.D., I have worked on Stochastic Nonlinear Dynamics and its applications to Fluid-elastic systems. My work draws insights and tools from physics, involves computational and experimental study of aero-elastic systems and applies these ideas to promising applications like energy harvesting.
I have worked on Structural Health Monitoring in the past, where evolutionary optimization techniques were used to develop fast sensor fault detection and optimal sensor placement techniques. I have also worked a bit on Meshfree methods and its application to modelling composite plates.
Short summaries of my research projects can be seen here.
I hold degrees in Bachelor in Engineering (Civil) and Master in Technology (Structural Engineering) and a Ph.D. (Applied Mechanics).
My research repertoire cuts across parts of Civil, Mechanical and Aerospace engineering, and Physics.
