About Dr. Amit Gupta

Dr. Amit Gupta is currently working as an Associate Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at IIT Delhi since December 2016 where he also held the position of Assistant Professor between May 2011-December 2016. Prior to joining IIT Delhi as a faculty, he was a post-doctoral research fellow at the GM/UM Advanced Battery Coalition for Drivetrains (ABCD), University of Michigan (UM), Ann Arbor. He received his MS and PhD at the University of Central Florida (UCF) in 2007 and 2009 respectively, and BTech from IIT Delhi in 2004.

As a Research Fellow at UM (May 2009-April 2011), he 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 various aspects of Li-ion cell optimization. He also analyzed unsteady aerodynamics of flapping wings towards design of Micro-Air Vehicles (MAV) through development of a lattice Boltzmann solver for moving boundary simulations.

As a graduate research assistant at UCF (Sept 2004 - May 2009), he 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 examining bubble rise and coalescence in high pressure systems. His PhD and MS 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 declared him "Winner of The College of Engineering and Computer Science Award for Outstanding Dissertation".

Dr. Gupta is a reviewer for the following journals: Physics of Fluids, Physical Review Fluids, Nature-Scientific Reports, Journal 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. He is also a member of American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) and the Electrochemical Society (ECS).

His broad research interests are in Energy Storage, Microfluidics and Flapping Wing Aerodynamics.
