Arjun began his Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering in 2022 under the guidance of Prof. Martin Bazant. He received his Bachelor of Technology in Chemical Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Bombay in 2022. It was there that Arjun developed a keen interest in modeling complex systems using efficient numerical methods. One of his most memorable projects was under Prof. Devang Khakhar, wherein he used extensive 3D Discrete Element Method (DEM) simulation to model size-segregation in bidisperse granular media. His undergraduate thesis revolved around a data-driven wavelet analysis of the spatiotemporal temperature patterns seen in industrial packed-bed reactors, for which he received the Undergraduate Research Award. Now, he hopes to further hone his skills in theory and computation, with his current project aiming to model the transport of electrolytes through charged nanopores.
