About me:

I am interested in the areas of fluid dynamics, turbulence, dynamical systems, and statistical physics. For my PhD thesis, I have studied the implications of inviscid hydrodynamics, such as the one-dimensional Burgers equation and the three-dimensional, incompressible Euler equa-
tion, on turbulent flows and statistical physics.

My PhD thesis advisor is Prof. Samriddhi Sankar Ray
