Inspired by movies and documentaries about astronauts, my love affair with rocket science and cosmology began at the age of 10. After finishing school, I studied Physics at Fergusson College, Pune, India, where I got my Bachelor of Science before pursuing a Masters degree in Physics at Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi, India (IIT-D). With Physics as my background, I then decided to change fields and study Aerospace Engineering at University of Florida (UF), Gainesville, U.S.A, and graduated with a Master of Science from there. I then decided to pursue a career in the industry and started work at Mentor Graphics Corporation in Wilsonville, Oregon, U.S.A. After a year of working, I realized that my passion lies in research and thus applied for a Ph.D. at my old alma mater, University of Florida. I have been working at the Multiphase Reactive Flow Research group at UF under the guidance of Dr. Ryan W. Houim since August, 2017. The primary topic of my research has been granular coal-dust explosions, but have also worked on other projects including aluminum particle burning and programmed burn. In addition to this, I have also been a Graduate Teaching Assistant for a variety of undergraduate courses such as Fluid Mechanics, Heat Transfer, Aerospace Propulsion, Heat Tansfer Laboratory, etc. for which I assisted a large number of students with their coursework, graded assignments and examinations, and have given lectures for many of the courses.
