Research Assistant Professor Department of Mechanics and Aerospace Engineering
I am a Research Assistant Professor in the Department of Mechanics and Aerospace Engineering at the Southern University of Science & Technology, Shenzhen, China. I received my PhD from the University of Cambridge, and master and bachelor degrees in Aeronautical Engineering from Indian Institute of Technology Madras. I was a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Cambridge, where I also held a knowledge transfer research fellowship to work with a startup (Ocean Array Systems) in marine energy.
In my research I apply tools from stability analysis, nonlinear dynamics, system identification and hydraulics on a variety of flows. The main application of my research focuses on optimisation of marine and wind energy, identification of flow structures, and prediction of thermoacoustic instabilities in gas-turbine engines.
