Jan 2018--Present. Assistant Professor. Department of Aerospace Engineering. Indian Institute of Technology Bombay, Mumbai, India

Jan 2014--Dec 2017. Senior post-doctoral scholar. Division of Engineering and Applied Sciences, California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, USA
I worked with Prof. Michael Ortiz on developing non-equilibrium statistical mechanics models for temporal coarse-graining of atomistic simulations. Prior to this, I worked on spatialĀ coarse-graining of atomistic simulations using the finite temperature Quasi-Continuum method, with applications to nano void growth in Magnesium.

Dec 2012--Dec 2013. Post-doctoral researcher. Ecole Centrale de Nantes, France
I worked with Prof. Laurent Stainier on developing staggered algorithms for strongly coupled thermomechanical problems with special focus on thermo-viscoelastic and thermo-viscoplastic constitutive models.

May--July 2012. Visiting Researcher. University of Exeter, UK
I worked briefly with Prof. Chris W. Smith on nonlinear finite element modeling of magnetostrictive smart materials.

2006--2012. PhD in Aerospace Engineering. Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, India
My doctoral thesis ("Wave Propagation in Hyperelastic Waveguides'') was done under the guidance of Prof. S. Gopalakrishnan. As part of this work, I developed a framework to automate the formulation of the finite element method for higher order structural waveguides using automatic differentiation and used it to study wave propagation in hyperelastic rods and beams.

2001--2006. B.Tech-M.Tech dual degree in Aerospace Engineering. Indian Institute of Technology Madras, India
I completed my Masters thesis in nonlinear aeroelasticity ("A finite element based aeroelastic solver for rod-like structures'') under the guidance of Dr. K.V.N. Gopal. I developed and implemented an aeroelastic solver for hyperelastic rods using a fully geometrically nonlinear rod model and a semi-empirical aerodynamic model.
