I have studied a wide variety of fluid mechanics and computer programming courses from fundamentals of fluids, and numerical programming during my undergraduate program to advanced courses such as continuum mechanics, advanced engineering math, microflows and nanoflows, CFD programming, parallel processing in my MSc program. My MSc dissertation is about the Dissipative Particle Dynamics (DPD) simulation of nanojets and centrifugal jets.

An important aspect of my research is numerical programming where I employ C/C++, Fortran, C#, or Python to create CFD and DEM models and analyse them. The codes I use are mostly High-performance (parallelized with OpenMP and MPI) and can be run on supercomputers like Cirrus and ARCHER.

I have a PhD in computational fluid mechanics where I focused on simulating multiphase flows with the lattice Boltzmann (LB) method. I have coded and tested many different LB models and boundary conditions.

I have two years experience of working in the oil and gas industry where I have been involved in different commercial and R&D projects mostly focusing on CFD modelling, numerical app development.

I am currently a research associate at the University of Edinburgh and concentrating on simulating powder spreading processes of additive manufacturing. A high-performance computational framework is being created to understand underlying physical phenomena. This helps us to improve the processability of powders.
