Hi! Welcome to my site. A mechanical engineer by training, I am spending my time doing academic research as a postdoctoral fellow at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Heat and mass transfer

Much of our lives depends on the transport of heat and keeping it at the desired place. However, we can yet hardly claim mastery of its transfer and storage, continuously dissipating usable energy to unrecoverable forms. Starting from the first principles, I attempt to design efficient interfaces and devices for the said purposes, and on the way bring new perspective to our understanding of basic physical processes.
