Robotics, Animal behavior and Smart materials


Academic Profile



D's lab

I am currently a post-doc in the Applied Math group at SEAS, Harvard. My interest lies in developing physical and mathematical understanding of animal and robot behavior. I have a continued interest in mechanics of materials, currently focused around material design. To this end I perform experiments with animals, build laboratory scale physical realizations and construct mathematical models to gain insights into the particular phenomenon of interest.

My PhD work at ICTS - TIFR, Bengaluru was on problems around instabilities in thin elastic structures (filaments and sheets) and also on dynamics of rigid particles in fluid flows.
