I am a chemical engineer at heart with a passion for fluid dynamics. I am currently working as a post-doc with Subsurface CO2 research group under ELEGANCY project. With an alarming increase in global warming levels, my research attempts to provides insight to efficient CO2 storage in subsurface reservoirs.
2018 - present: Research Associate, Imperial College, London, UK
2011 - 2017: PhD, The City college of New York, New York, USA
Thesis title: Suspension Flow in Bifurcating Channels
2007 - 2011: B.Chem. Eng, Institute of Chemical Technology, India
My current research is focused on understanding the multi-phase flow in porous media using high-speed imaging (for micro-models) and computed tomography as experimental tools. I use combination of experiments and numerical methods to characterise multi-phase flow at pore-scale as well as core-scale.
