About me

I graduated with a Ph.D. from Department of Mechanics (now known as Deparment of Engineering Mechanics) on September 2019. My research is centred around geophysical flows, studied from a turbulence perspective. I am trained in computational, theoretical and experimental tools. You would find me developing simple, efficient, open-source, and reproducible computational methods.

Thesis:Advancements in stratified flows through simulation, experiment and open research software development
