Research Statement:

 

My primary research interest is in the development and application of numerical methods for the simulation of fluid flows. My current focus is on developing robust computational methods for fluid-structure interaction problems characterized by large structural motions and/or deformations. Previously, I worked on the CFD analysis of the aerodynamics of several micro air vehicle (MAV) configurations. These included unconventional rotary wing configurations such as ducted and cycloidal rotors and MAVs with flapping wings. I have also extensively worked on improving algorithms pertaining to overset (chimera) meshes.
