My present research concerns multi-scale modelling of geophysical fluid dynamics. More specifically, I am interested to study turbulence in the planetary boundary layer and fluid structure interaction problems. I use adaptive direct numerical simulation and/or fully Lagrangian techniques for explaining multi-scale nature of geophysical flows. Potential graduate applicants are encouraged to contact me. However, only candidates with suitable background are expected to get a reply due to the volume of emails I receive. Applicants with appropriate background may also discuss with me on the possibility of receiving slightly higher scholarship compared to current departmental average.

Currently, I am an Assistant Professor at the Dept. of Mathematics, Memorial University, Canada. Before joining Memorial, I was SHARCNET post-doctoral fellow in atmospheric modelling at the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences , University of Waterloo, Canada.

I obtained a PhD degree in computational Mathematics, with a specialization in turbulence, from McMaster University, and an MSc degree in Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) from the University of Alberta, Canada.
