Hello! Welcome to my website.
I am a PhD student in Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I am currently working with Prof. C. Armando Duarte in the field of Structural Engineering and Structural Mechanics.
My research interests are primarily in the field of Generalized/eXtended Finite Element Methods (GFEM/XFEM), Simulation of hydraulic fracturing in shale rocks, Multiscale methods and Three-Dimensional Interaction of complex crack networks.
I completed my MS in Civil Engineering with graduate specialization in Computational Science and Engineering from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Before that I finished B.E. (Hons.) in Civil Engineering from BITS-Pilani in India.
