I am currently pursuing PhD in the area of Aero Acoustics at Material and Engineering Research Institute (MERI), Sheffield Hallam University, UK in collaboration with HORIBA-MIRA.

Before joining my PhD, I worked at Automotive Research Center (ARC), VIT University, India. My tenure at ARC gave the opportunity to work with Automotive Research Association India (ARAI) on projects related to low drag vehicle designs. I was actively involved in building an industrial client base for ARC and improve existing academic relations with several automotive R&D centres across India. I took initiation and developed a high-performance cluster computing facility at ARC from scratch to provide a robust infrastructure for numerical simulations.

I am proficient in using Fluent, Star CCM+ and Virtual Wind Tunnel (Hyperworks) along with design packages such as Solidworks and CATIA.

I am looking for like-minded people to collaborate to develop smart technology for fuel saving in vehicles using vehicle aerodynamic concepts. I am interested in establishing my career either in the F1 or highly motivated and challenging vehicle R&D centres as an aerodynamicist.
