About

Pavan enjoy's working on challenging topics, and is always looking for new ventures and interesting ideas or applications. 

Pavan is  pursing PhD Mathematical Analysis (numerical methods) at SISSA, Italy. He hold's two Master's - Thermal and Fluid Engineering from University of Manchester, UK and Applied Math form Brown University, USA; with B.Tech in Aeronautical Engineering. He has held research positions in France, USA, UK and India on interdisciplinary topics, but applied to aerodynamics. His recent research topic of developing turbulence models by exploiting Fractional Calculus, led to three awards. He was also invited to the prestigious Math Institute in Cambridge, UK for two scientific programs, turbulence and fractional differential equations.
