Duration: 2021 - till date

Brief Bio:

My name is Subhas Nandy. I completed my B.Tech from National Institute of Technology, Durgapur. Following my graduation in 2018, I worked for a couple of months at Vedanta Resources PLC (in the unit of Bharat Aluminium Company), where I was in charge of Operations & Maintenance of Alloy Ingot Production Facility along with Inventory Management and Control. I had developed a keen interest in Fluid Dynamics and Heat Transfer back during my undergraduate education, and so I decided to return to the field of academics. After preparing for a couple of months, I appeared in GATE-2020 and managed to secure a decent AIR of 347, which allowed me to get admitted into the prestigious Indian Institute of Technology, Madras. I have developed an inclination towards understanding the physics of Microscale Fluid Flow processes. Being an inquisitive learner, I am looking forward to a great experience in this renowned research group under the guidance of Prof. Ashis Kumar Sen.
