Profile Summary 

Research Interests

Computational Fluid Dynamics, Finite Volume Method, Fluid-Structure Interaction (FSI) problems, Shape Optimization

I ​specialise in solving Partial Differential Equations using numerical methods. I am particularly fond of using OpenFOAM, an open source package for discretizing PDEs using Finite Volume Method. At present we are working on developing following modules in OpenFOAM: Shape Optimisation codes, Immersed Boundary Methods. We are also extensively using the newly developed OpenFOAM's overset mesh support to study designs of Vertical Axis Wind Turbines (VAWT).
