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.
