Piyush Pradhan

Ph.D. Student (M.S. @ Columbia University, 2023; B.E. @ BITS Pilani, 2022)


Piyush completed his Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering at Columbia University in 2023. Before that, he pursued his undergraduate studies in Mechanical Engineering at the Birla Institute of Technology & Science, Pilani (BITS Pilani). During his undergraduate years, he focused on applying various computational techniques (Finite Element Method, Finite Volume Method, Vortex Method) to simulate fluid-structure interaction problems. As a graduate student, Piyush worked on developing software for simulating porous media flows using the Lattice Boltzmann Method. His research interests encompass electronics cooling, computational modeling, and robotics.
