I am a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellow at the School of Mathematics, University of Manchester, UK. My stay at UoM is funded by a MSCA Individual Fellowship to implement the FastFlowSim project and Professor Nicholas J. Higham is my host.

Before moving to Manchester, I was an Assistant Research Professor at CIMNE Barcelona, Spain. I graduated with a B.Tech. degree in civil engineering from IIT Guwahati, India and a Ph.D. degree in computational mechanics from UPC (BarcelonaTech), Spain. I am a native of Kerala state in southern India.

My current research is on particle-based explicit exponential integrators for the simulation of low viscosity incompressible flows and its efficient implementation in software. A salient feature of my work is that I employ analytical solutions to integrate the particle kinematics driven by approximate piecewise linear velocity and acceleration fields. The analytical solutions are expressed in terms of matrix functions—the numerically stable and efficient computation of which is a specific goal.

In the past I have proposed, among other works, novel Petrov–Galerkin FEM for the numerical simulation of the convection–diffusion–reaction equation and the Helmholtz equation.

The following poem, which I learnt at school, has motivated the approach taken in my activities till date:

Climb every mountain, ford every stream,
Follow every rainbow, till you find your dream.
A dream that will take all the love that you can give,
All the days of your life as long as you live.
