Welcome to my page at ETH.

I am currently working as a Doctoral candidate at DMAVT-ETH Zürich/EMPA under Prof. Dr. Carmeliet. Previously, I was a scientific officer in the R & D department at LaVision, Göttingen on the development of the helium filled soap bubble (HFSB) seeding system to achieve large scale tomographic PIV. I graduated with a Master's degree in aerodynamics from Prof. Fulvio Scarano's group at TU Delft. During my studies at TU, I held a board position (Secretary) at the European Association of Aerospace Students (EUROAVIA) Delft.

I have a Bachelors degree in Mechanical Engineering from National Institute of Technology, Karnataka, India. During my undergraduate studies, I have interned at Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore under the guidance of Prof. Kartik Venkatraman (Associate Professor, Department of Aerospace Engineering). Also, I was a Summer Research Fellow at Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay under guidance of Prof. Rajkumar S. Pant (Associate Professor, Department of Aerospace Engineering).

In the past, I have worked at Oil and Natural Gas Corporation Ltd., one of the leading Exploration and Production Company, as a Mechanical In-Charge at Rig F-6100-II, Ankleshwar, India.
