I am a Ph.D student in Mechanical engineering. I am mostly interested in the Rheology of non-Newtonian Fluids and in particular shear thickening fluids. Suspension of cornstarch in water “oobleck” is the most popular example of a shear thickening fluid, which is the focus of my research.The objective of my study is to understand the origin of the shear thickening behavior and explore ways to control the shear thickening behaviors. For more details, see my paper and the abstract of my recent presentations at APS-DFD 2016 and 2017.

I am enrolled in a dual degree PhD program between Ohio University (OU) in US and Bordeaux University (BU) in France. The title of my research is “in-homogeneities in the flow of non-Newtonian suspensions”. The purpose is to develop innovative experimental tools and model frameworks to determine the drag force exerted on the particulate phase of a suspension with a non-linear suspending fluid when the suspension itself is not homogeneous. For more details, see the abstract of my recent presentation at APS-DFD 2017.

I am a Ph.D. student of Mechanical Engineering at Ohio University. I have a broad interest in fluid mechanics, particularly in complex fluids and dense suspensions, and also in CFD simulations. Prior to joining OU, I worked on developing algorithms for reduction of large and complex combustion mechanisms and also effects of altering solidity and tip clearance on transonic rotor compressors using CFD codes. In my current research, I am focused on numerical simulations of particle motion in viscoelastic and elastoviscoplatic (EVP) fluids using an efficient Immersed Boundary (IB) Method for parallel execution on multiprocessor machines with distributed memory. Besides, I employed particle image velocimetry (PIV) and particle tracking velocimetry (PTV) techniques to study the dispersion and layering of solid particles in a Taylor Couette cell. For more information, please see the abstract of my recent presentation at APS-DFD 2017.

I am an M.Sc. student in Mechanical engineering with primary research interests in complex fluids, physics of suspensions and computational fluid dynamics. Previously, I studied the interactions of particles in linear shear flows of yield stress fluids using PIV and PTV techniques. This problem is a guide to understanding the behavior of complex suspensions. For more details, see the abstract of my recent publication and my presentations at APS-DFD 2016 and 2017. My current focus is on the simulation of the particle interactions in shear flows of elastoviscoplastic (EVP) materials via Immersed Boundary Method (IBM) using parallel platforms. My CV.
