About Me: I am a chemical engineer from India. I love photography, hiking, and any adventure sports in general.
I come from a southern state in India, called Kerala. I dabble in photography as my main hobby. I usually prefer landscapes and portrait photography. Ireland is a great place to be for these interests. I also love to go on hikes and trails, which works well with my interest in photography.

My Work: I work on simulating flow of fluids in harsh conditions, like the flow of air around an aircraft or the flow of tea when you stir the pot.
I am a PhD student at the University of Limerick. I work on using computers to model extreme fluid flows and finding better solutions to predict these flows in the future. This work can lead to improvements in various fields, like aeordynamics (think cars, planes, rockets, etc.) , chemical reactors, astronomy (think of the swirls on planets like Jupiter).
My Typical Day: After freshening up in the morning, I have breakfast and go to my lab at the university. Here, I conduct many virtual tests and experiments throughout the day. At the evening, I meet up with the amazing people at the photography society for some fun events. I then play badminton with the club members before returning home for dinner and a good nights sleep.
