Research summary: Anterior Cruciate Liagament (ACL) is one of the major ligaments at the knee and is highly susceptible to injury in sports. The number of ACL Reconstruction (ACLR) surgeries have increased in the last few years especially in younger population. My current research work focuses on evaluating the effects of ACLR in day to day activities. Project Duration: 2016-2021 Supervisors: The University of Melbourne: …
Encapsulation of Lactic Acid Bacteria and γ-Amino Butyric Acid using Exopolysaccharides for Food Applications Research Summary: My current research focuses on the micro encapsulation of lactic acid bacteria (LAB)and γ-aminobutyric acid (GABA) using Exopolysaccharides (EPS) as wall materials, its survivability in different conditions and development of food products using encapsulated powder. EPS like dextran and inulin are demanding as prebiotics by treating …
Research summary: During my PhD I will investigate the transport phenomenon of the surface modified bimetallic iron nanoparticles through the porous media with a special focus on the identification of the mechanism or mechanisms controlling the mobility of the nanoparticle. In particular, I am exploring the effect of solution chemistry (i.e. pH, ionic strength and natural organic matter) relevant to subsurface geochemical …
Research summary: During my PhD, I plan to investigate the physics behind jets and shockwaves induced by multi-bubble interaction. Examining the possible wear on materials due to such mechanistic effects but at different temperatures poses some interesting challenges. For this purpose, my work aims to develop a numerical model, that is supported by experimental evidence pertaining to bubble-interaction near solid. The results …

A spatial and temporal scale multi objective optimization for urban water system incorporating future uncertainties Research summary: During my PhD, I will work on the modeling of integrated urban water systems. In particular, the idea is to identify optimum scale for water supply system under spatial and temporal variability that would respond to uncertain future events, satisfying the multiple objectives (maximizing water …
Research Project Title: Spatio Temporal Structure of Object Representation Research summary: Experimenting and modelling nano self assembly through Reprecipitation, Miniemulsion and PhotoAggregation Project Duration: 2019 - 2022 Supervisor: The University of Melbourne: Associate Professor Trevor Smith and Professor Ken Ghiggino IIT Kharagpur: Assistant Professor Pawan Goyal Profile: I completed my undergraduate degree in ComperScience at IIT Kharagpur and have worked as a J2EE architect where my …

Research Summary: During my Doctoral research, my aim will be focus on the investigation of near-wall combustion phenomena/flame-wall interaction which is found in almost all the practical combustors. It has various adverse effects such as the reduction in combustion efficiency, increase in pollutant emissions, and lowering in combustor liner (or wall) life. In particular, I will be focussing on to gain the …
