I am interested in the areas of fluid dynamics, turbulence, dynamical systems, and statistical physics. In my graduate studies, my research was focused mainly on the understanding of the statistical theory of turbulence. For my PhD thesis, I have studied the implications of inviscid hydrodynamics, such as the one-dimensional Burgers equation and the three-dimensional, in-compressible Euler equation, on turbulent flows and statistical physics.
My PhD thesis advisor is Prof. Samriddhi Sankar Ray
