About Me

Hello There !

Thank you for your interest to know something about me and my work. The short version of my name is Keerthi, and I am from India. I grew up in the city of Tiruppur, where a majority of the people were involved with textile related activities.  It provided many possibilities for one to witness and explore the evolution from a cotton crop to clothes that different cultures across the world desires. Like to many others, this industrial activity also provided me the opportunity to observe the need for sustainable and energy efficient ways to address the human needs. This desire gradually evolved during my under-graduation in Mechanical Engineering at PSG College of Technology (India), and thanks to the professors there, I decided to pursue my future endeavors in the field of thermal sciences. Upon graduating in 2013, I continued to work with my thesis supervisor, initially on a commercial gasification research plant for an year, and later on solar adsorption refrigeration system. With this background, I decided to pursue higher studies, and completed my M.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering - Energy Technology from the Technical University of Delft, The Netherlands. My master thesis [1] dealt with experimental investigations on the hydrodynamic behavior of waves in thin film flows.

My current work focuses on utilizing magnets to obtain room temperature cooling (using magnetocalric effect).
