From February 2021, I work as a PhD candidate in Mesoscale Chemical Systems (MCS) group, on the characterization and control of jets in needle free injection systems in the ERC project BuBble Gun, under Dr. David Fernandez Rivas. I will be focusing on obtaining jet stability by means of additives and contact line dynamics. The end goal would be to create a setup/method capable of producing stable and reproducible jets, that can pierce human skin and deliver the required dosage.
My background: I obtained my Bachelor of Technology degree in Mechanical Engineering from SASTRA University, Thanjavur, India, in the year 2016. Consecutively, I worked in Ashok Leyland (an Indian automotive manufacturer) as a project manager in the information technology department. I traveled to the Netherlands in 2018 to study at TU Delft, and obtained my Master of Science degree in Mechanical engineering, with a specialisation in Energy and Process Technology in September 2020. I carried out my Masters thesis at Wetsus, Leeuwarden, on size based selective separation of polyethylene particles in water, under the action of Dynamic Acoustic Fields.
