Brief Bio

In 2016, I completed my Bachelors in Mechanical Engineering from University of Pune. For my Bachelor’s thesis I interned at the Armament Research Development Establishment, Pune, a lab of DRDO. During which I was motivated to pursue higher education in the field of Computational Mechanics. I joined the Erasmus Mundus M.Sc. in Computational Mechanics (2017-19). I completed the first year at Universitat Politecnica de Catalunya located in Barcelona, and the second year at Ecole Centrale de Nantes located in Nantes, France. During my summer internship at Institute of Thermomechanics, CAS and my master’s thesis at Vibracoustic Nantes SAS, I was inspired to join the field of research. I joined the University of Luxembourg as a Ph.D. student in April 2020 under Prof. Bernhard PETERS.
