Neil Armstrong had said, “Research is creating knowledge” and through the completion of my Masters and especially my Masters thesis, I realised that I am fascinated, thrilled and in love
with this art of creating knowledge, and I want to dive deeper into the beautiful world of
research. My passion for aircrafts urged to me to pursue my Bachelors in Aeronautical
Engineering, from NMIT, Bangalore, India, and then my Masters in Aeronautical Engineer at
Linkping university, Sweden.

I have worked on CFD projects related to aerodynamics and heat transfer that got me closer to
the world of simulations. I was fortunate enough to be given a project by Airinnova AB, Sweden for my Masters Thesis, which was based on multi-domain simulations. The aim of my Masters
Thesis was to develop a tool that numerically designs and simulates aircraft propeller models.
The work that I put in my thesis made me realise that I want to work in the field of numerical
modelling and simulation.

Presently I am an Early Stage Researcher, as a part of the Dynamic Virtualisation: Modelling
Performance of Engineering Structures, at AGH University of Science and Technology, Krakow,
Poland. I am working on ESR3 research project, which is dedicated to multiscale modelling of
elastodynamic equations. The goal of this project is to develop a dynamic multiscale framework
(of space and time scales) for Acoustic Emission (AE) source and wave propagation, allowing
for prediction of AE signals and correlating AE signal features with particular damage features.
Apart from research, I love humour, writing, music and football.
