Profile

Assistant Professor in the field of Mathematics(NS)

Research News: RA/JRF/SRF Position will be available very soon via Extra Mural Research-II (CSIR) & Unpaid internships are highly encouraged to work in the topic Mathematical Modelling on Bio-Fluid Dynamics. Research Proposal Approved via Core Research Grant(CRG) SCHEME, DST-SERB; Visiting Fellowship Grant 2018-19@JNCASR ;Research Proposal Approved via MATRICS SCHEME, SERB 2018-20 Research Interests: I am interested in micro-organisms and their mathematical Modelling, in particular microscopic phototactic algae (e.g. Chalamydomonas Nivalis.). My research focuses on the new Mathematical physics required to understand swimmming micro-organisms, from single cells to populations. Herein, the swimmers self-propel and actively respond to environmental bias (gravity, flow, light, chemicals...), in contrast to the passive microscopic particles (e.g. colloids). Bio-convection, the process of spontaneous large scale convection in shallow layers of swimmer supsensions, is an appropriate classical example of it . As inspired by current challenging problems in sustainable bioengineering and environmental microbiology, the typical environments for the swimmers are tubes, channels and porous media and so on. I hope, the new physics of swimmers, and the application of physics via suitable mathematical models to such suspensions of micro-organisms in general, have the potential to improve promising bioengineering applications. My research concerns around such applications: I use a combination of mathematical modelling and numerical experiments to solve problems inspired by these applications.
