Research Assistant, Integrated Micro/Nanofluidics Lab, UT Arlington, TX Jan 2016-Present

• Investigated thermocapillary effect and mass transport in microdroplets experimentally and numerically.

• Executed multiphase fluid-flow and heat transfer simulations using Comsol Multiphysics (CAE software).

• Conceptualized, designed and fabricated test apparatus using various microfabrication techniques.

• Validated simulation results with experimental observations and conclusions from literature. Research Intern, University of Texas at Arlington Research Institute, Fort Worth, TX Sep 2016-May 2017

• Designed and analyzed a microfluidic channel to capture circulating tumor cells (CTC).

• Designed a sealed easy access modular platform and integrated it with a PDMS microfluidic channel.

• Optimized the microchannel design by using Herringbone(HB) structure to maximize transversal mixing.

• Improved the cell capture efficiency from 65% in the conventional microchannel to 95% in HB Microchannel.

• Investigated application of staggered Herringbone Microchannel in enhancing heat transfer rate. RESEARCH PROJECT

Droplet based hot spot cooling using electrowetting-on-dielectric (EWOD) platform.

• Numerically modeled a three-dimensional EWOD droplet actuation by using Comsol Multiphysics.

• Simulated a single-phase heat transfer problem of droplet-based hot spot cooling.

• Experimentally investigated evaporative cooling effect by moving a water droplet over the hotspot.

• Achieved 3 c to 6 c drop in hotspot temperature by phase change or evaporative cooling. ACADEMIC PROJECTS

Design and validation of a screw conveyor.

• Designed a single screw conveyor and performed cost analysis, reliability analysis, and tolerance analysis.

• Reviewed various material selection methodologies and Design for manufacturing (DFM) principles. Analytical study of a 3-blade wind turbine to predict energy harvesting capacity.

• Built a mathematical model to predict wind energy harvesting capacity of a 3-blade wind turbine.

• Predicted energy harvesting capacity at various wind speed, angular velocity, and blade pitch angle. Design and analysis of a riveted plate.

• Modeled and analyzed a plate-bolt assembly using SolidWorks and Ansys workbench respectively.

• Performed stress-strain analysis to find high stress concentration area to determine feasibility of design.
