Biography

I am a Senior Lecturer in Engineering and a member of the Glasgow Computational Engineering Centre (GCEC) at the University of Glasgow. I started my college education at the Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur and studied Aerospace Engineering. From there, I moved to the University of California, Los Angeles and obtained a PhD in Mechanical Engineering with a minor in Applied Mathematics. Afterwards, I worked as a postdoctoral fellow at the Center for Cardiovascular Simulation (CCS), part of ICES, at the University of Texas at Austin. Before joining University of Glasgow, I was a National Research Network Fellow at the Zienkiewicz Centre for Computational Engineering (ZCCE), Swansea University for three years.
