Primary research interests are: Micro/nano Systems and Integration, and Multiphysics Modeling in Engineering Design. The application areas of research include Vertical Take-off and Landing (VTOL) Multirotor Aerial Vehicles, Renewable/Alternative Energy, Manufacturing Process Modeling and Optimization, Miniature Thermal Systems etc. Published 50 technical papers in refereed international journals and conference proceedings and attended many international conferences.
· Apply multi-physics modeling to design and optimize vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) multirotor aerial vehicles for better power efficiency through integrated aerodynamic and structural performance. This project has been internally funded by the SPCEET grant, 2018, KSU and the Graduate College through a GRA, 2018, KSU.
· Apply multi-physics modeling to design and optimize a tidal turbine and farm located in the Gulf Stream. This project has not been funded so far.
· Develop a computational fluid dynamics model by lattice Boltzmann method (LBM) to model multiphase, multicomponent fluid flow in micro-channels with nanoscale surface modifications. The study was initiated during the Summer Faculty Fellowship Program, 2014. The LBM was originally introduced to me at Carnegie Mellon University for designing nano/micro fluidic devices. The project at that time was sponsored by Bettis Atomic Power Laboratory, Bechtel Bettis, Inc. and EXA Corporation.
· Design and develop a compact and lightweight waste energy recovery system from automobile engine exhaust gas and coolant. The project is in collaboration with Georgia Institute of Technology. It was partially funded by Academic Affairs Small Grants Program, Southern Polytechnic State University.
· Conducted thermal/mechanical analysis of transmission laser microjoining of dissimilar materials for packaging of bio-implants and opto-electronics. This project was funded by a grant from the Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC).
· Developed a molecular simulation model for protein adsorption to biomaterial solid surfaces for nano-scale biofilm characterization for bioMEMS, biosensors and biocompatibility. The project was funded by Wayne State University Nanotechnology Initiative.
· Characterized and optimized nano-scale liquid perfluoropolyether films on solid carbon surfaces for better design of head-disk interface and nano-tribology. The project was sponsored by the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS).
· Designed and developed a surface accumulator and a separator of E. coli bacteria to be detected by biosensors in micro/mini channel flow. The work was sponsored by the US Army TACOM titled “Real-Time Biosensor Water Monitoring System”.
· Performed research on the effect of expansion angle on turbulent swirling flow to optimize the design of a combustor.
