I am an associate professor in the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, Center for Applicable Mathematics, Bangalore. My official page is located here.

If you are a student looking for internship, project assistant position or postdoc position, please read this.

For the details of the numerical scheme, see here.




My primary research interest is CFD and its applications. I am also interested in numerical analysis and numerical solution of PDE in general.
