Hi, I graduated with a PhD in Mechanical Engineering and a MS in Financial Mathematics from Stanford University, CA in September 2008 and am presently employed as a Staff Development Engineer with Seagate Technology, MN.  At Stanford I worked under the guidance of Prof. Charbel Farhat in the Flow Physics and Computation division of the Department of Mechanical Engineering. My PhD thesis involved developing robust Multiscale Large Eddy Simulation procedures for the simulation of compressible turbulent flows on moving meshes.  Previously, I had graduated with a MS in Computational Engineering from the Singapore-MIT Alliance and a Masters in Aerospace Engineering from Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur.
