Hi, I am Akhil! A graduate student in the Department of Aerospace Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, working with Prof. Deborah A. Levin on high-fidelity modeling of compressible multi-phase flows. I try to understand these complex gas-solid multi-phase systems from two viewpoints. Meso-scale numerical modeling of gas flow around solid particulates is used to understand the general mobility parameters, further used in extensive length-scale continuum simulations to tackle practical engineering problems.

Other than research, I like exploring new hiking trails, photography, sketching, and painting.!
