Interdisciplinary Work

Academic Duty

I have been looking after Computer Aided Engineering work, especially Computational Fluid Dynamics at The Centre for Modeling and Simulation since 2008. This group was started by Prof. V. Sundararajan of C-DAC Pune and Prof. K. C. Sharma of Dept. of Space and Atmospheric Sciences, University of Pune. We share our resources and activities in the subgroup CAE of the group CMS@UoP on LinkedIn.

Academic Supervision

I have guided five students towards their Masters Projects in Scientific Computing.
I have also been the internal guide for several M.Tech and Diploma students in Modeling and Simulation for their course projects.

Ph.D. Examination

Functioned as a part of a Ph.D. thesis committee in Complex Systems (M. Ali Saif in 2010)

Functioned as co-guide for thesis work in coupled map lattices (Abhijit Sonawane 2010)
