Description of Research

  • Computational modeling of transport of an arbitrarily shaped particle in an incompressible flow using Direct Numerical Simulation (DNS) approach and an immersed boundary method (IBM).
  • Study the adhesion of micro/nano-particles on collagen and on endothelial cells at different physiological flow conditions.

Major Areas of Research

Biomedical Engineering; Numerical Modeling of particle flow; Immersed Boundary Method.
