About me

As an Applied Mathematician, I combine data, mathematical modeling, and scientific computing techniques to study complex and unexplained health problems. I completed my Ph.D. in 2014 from the School of Mathematics and Statistics, University of Glasgow, UK, under Professor Nicholas A Hill. From 2014 to 2019, I worked as a postdoctoral fellow with Professor Mette Olufsen in the Department of Mathematics at North Carolina State University (NCSU). Besides research, I taught various specialized and service courses as an instructor of record at NCSU Mathematics Department.


Research overview

My broader interests fall in the area of Mathematical Biology, with a particular focus on physiological fluid dynamics. I design and conduct modeling studies to understand the structure-function relationship of the local and multi-scale physiological systems, including the cardiovascular & pulmonary networks and upper airways.

My research's computational aspects include the formulation of multi-fidelity fluid dynamics models and their analysis by performing parameter estimation and uncertainty quantification. My recent projects include an NIH funded phase-II SBIR for developing a Nasal Surgery Simulator and an NSF funded research on Remodeling of Cardiovascular Networks In The Presence of Pulmonary Hypertension. I was a Co-PI on the NSF-DMS grantThese studies have various applications in Biomedical Engineering, including simulation software for medical devices for virtual surgery and noninvasive diagnosis.

In the future, I am particularly interested in high-performance computing and modeling techniques for feasible-time high-fidelity flow simulations in complex geometries. Please visit my Research page to learn more about my interdisciplinary work.
