I am a Ph.D. student in the Granular Materials Lab at the University of California Davis. My current research focus lies in the quantification of micro-scale behavior of granular materials using state-of-the-art experimental techniques and particle-based multi-physics numerical techniques. My core research interests include granular material mechanics, fundamental soil mechanics, computational geotechnics and scientific computing. Currently, I am working on design, fabrication and implementation of a multi-bender element testing setup to get an estimation of granular fabric using shear wave velocities.
Before UC Davis, I got my Master’s in Geotechnical and Geoenvironmental Engineering from Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi. At IIT-Delhi, I was part of numerous research and consulting projects, mostly on ground improvement, sustainability, and geo-environmental engineering. For my master’s thesis research, I worked on Discrete Element Modelling at Zentrum Geotechnik of Technical University of Munich for seven months under the DAAD scholarship.
At UC Davis, most of my time is dedicated to three G’s:
