Mission Statement

Swansea 3x2 There has been a revival in the medical and biological science with the advanced imaging and fast computation resources widely available. Because of these new abilities, it is now possible to use an engineering approach for medical problems, that is to be more quantitative, objective, and precise in making decisions. My aim is to use the engineering principles and computational mechanics techniques to ZCCE Logoshed light into biological phenomenon.

I started my college education at the Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur, where I was a student in the Aerospace Engineering. From there, I moved to the University of California, Los Angeles for my PhD in Mechanical Engineering. I worked on mechanics of proteins using multi-scale computational tools. Afterwards, in order to work on problems of directly clinical significance, I moved to the University of Texas at Austin. I worked as a postdoctoral fellow at the Center for Cardiovascular Simulation (CCS) part of ICES. There, I worked on mechanics of heart valve, pateint specific modeling, diagnostic and stratification using ultra-sound. Currently, I am a research fellow at Swansea University. My position is funded by Wales' National Research Network (NRN) and is within the Zienkiewicz Centre for Computational Engineering (ZC2E).
