About Dr. Amit Gupta
joined IIT Delhi in May 2011, I am
currently working as an Associate Professor
and hold the NTPC Chair position in the Department of
Mechanical Engineering si
nce December 2016.
Prior to joining IIT Delhi as a faculty, I
was a post-doctoral research fellow at the GM/UM
Advanced Battery Coalition for Drivetrains (ABCD), University of
Michigan (UM), Ann Arbor. I
University of Central Florida (UCF) in 2007 and 2009
respectively, and B.
from IIT Delhi in 2004.
As a Research Fellow at UM (May 2009-April 2011),
was a project leader for the work-stream on
'Micro to cell-based electrode modeling and optimization' and
involved in collaboration with GM R&D and University of Colorado
on aspects of Li-ion cell modeling and
optimization. During this time I
began development of lattice Boltzmann based solvers for
unsteady aerodynamics of flapping wings towards design of
Micro-Air Vehicles (MAV).
graduate research assistant at UCF (Sept 2004 - May 2009),
pursued the development of a
framework to simulate multiphase flows using lattice Boltzmann
method, in particular for droplet formation in T-junction
microfluidic devices, and examined
bubble rise and coalescence in high pressure systems.
thesis are titled "Droplet Flows in Microchannels using
Lattice Boltzmann Method" and "Lattice Boltzmann Simulation to
Study Single and Multi Bubble Dynamics" respectively. In April
2010, the University of Central Florida, FL, USA
conferred me with
"The College of Engineering and Computer Science Award
for Outstanding Dissertation".I
have been a
for the following journals: Physics of Fluids, Physical Review
Reports, Computers and Fluids,
of Heat Transfer, Journal of the Electrochemical Society,
International Journal of Heat and Mass Transfer, Chemical
Engineering Science, Materials Research Bulletin, Journal of
Thermophysics and Heat Transfer, Applied Surface Science,
Ionics, Communications in Computational Physics and
International Journal of Molecular Sciences.
also a member of
American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) and
the Electrochemical Society (ECS).I
have served in various administrative positions at IIT Delhi. In
particular, I was the Vice-President of Board for Student
Welfare (BSW) during 2012-2014, the convenor of Deparment
Research Committee (DRC) from 2016-2018, and programme
coordinator for Ph.D. and M.S.(R) from 2016-2018.
interests are in Energy Storage, Microfluidics and
Flapping Wing Aerodynamics.
