Welcome to my home page! I'm a member of the faculty at the department of aerospace engineering, IIT Bombay. I am an alumnus of the department of aerospace engineering, IIT Madras.

My Research interests include vortex methods, particle methods for computational fluid dynamics, scientific computing and applied scientific data visualization. I'm an advocate of Free and Open Source software and in my spare time develop some free/open software. I blog very occasionally. In 2011, I helped start Enthought India. I am currently a director of the company.
