Here at NTNU, in the capacity of Postdoctoral fellow at Mechanical and Industrial engineering, working on INCITE project (EU Horizon 2020) in consortium with Faculty of Medicine, NTNU and others. We aim in the design and development of 3D perfusion system for generation of T cells with stem phenotypes and enhanced cancer cytotoxicity. This 3D system will be designed and developed by optimizing the design parameters and carrying out two Phase CFD simulations in Ansys / OpenFoam, and followed by additive manufacturing.
Have obtained Doctoral degree in Applied Physics with research in Microfluidics and CFD Simulations from Defense Institute of Advanced Technology (DIAT), Pune, India. And have done Master's in Nanotechnology from Rajiv Gandhi Proudyogiki Vishwavidyalaya (RGPV), Bhopal, India and Master's in Physics from Sri Krishnadevaraya University, Anantapur, India.
Regarding my Professional research so far,
Research Associate after PhD in DIAT, India, from 2016 to 2017,
Assistant Manager in the R&D dept. at Uniphos Envirotronic Private Limited (UEPL), Vapi, India, from 2017 to 2019.
Microfluidic R&D consultant for a US based start-up company Sigenex, USA from 2020 (Sep) to 2021 (Jan).
Apart from my professional research, I love Nature and intrigued by its principle of working, interested about people and politics, and likes to be with my kids and family in free time.
My vast education ingested me with exploratory research qualities, inquisitiveness towards science and new technologies and imparted the philosophy of "learn & apply". This is being reflected in my accomplishments.
Currently, working as Post doctoral fellow, herein, I work on CFD Simulations in ANSYS and Open Foam to bring out scaffold structures and designs that can efficiently proliferate the growth of T cells in-vitro and that can efficiently invade the cancerous cells in-vivo. As well, the project is sponsored by EU Horizon 2020, which have Interdisciplinary teams in universities and companies spread across Europe. Delighted and motivated to work with the experts and collectively will find a solution to the menaced cancer.
