I am generally interested in computational modeling of realistic thermal fluids problems with strong engineering relevance from a variety of perspectives. My research includes high-fidelity modeling through high-performance computing, reduced-order modeling and data-driven modeling etc.

The major piece of my work aims to develop systematic modeling hierarchy for turbulent reacting flows targeting for combustion applications. This hierarchy seeks to solve the challenges in modeling critical physical phenomena in reacting flow problems (e.g. accurate & efficient prediction of combustion instability in full-scale engines and comprehensive turbulent combustion closure model development) at both fundamental and application levels.

As the research scientist for Computational Aerosciences Laboratory led by Prof. Karthik Duraisamy, the research in our lab involves the development and application of ``appropriate'' fidelity simulation and data-driven methods to answer a spectrum of scientific and engineering questions.
