MULTIPHASE FLOW GROUP
<![if !vml]><![endif]>Dr. Bahni Ray has joined the Mechanical Engineering Department of IIT Delhi in 2017 as an Assistant Professor.
She got her B. Tech & M.Tech Dual degree in 2006 from IIT, Kharagpur Mechanical Engineering Department.
She received her doctorate degree in Mechanical Engineering from IIT Kanpur on 2012. After her Ph. D., she
worked as a Postdoctoral researcher at Johns Hopkins University, Maryland, USA for one year and City college
of New York, New York, USA for two years.
Dr. Ray works research work covers a wide range of fundamental study and industrial applications of
multiphase flow systems with main focus on drop and bubble dynamics and microchannel using numerical
and theoretical tools. Her research covers multiscale phenomena ranging from flow in microchannel to large
drop impacts for large range of time. To study the multiphysics different in-house and open source code are
used. Apart from developing numerical schemes to capture the intricate details of interfacial flow, her main
focus is on studying the physics explaining the different flow phenomena. The primary application of her work
is on ink-jet printing, emulsions, oil spill breakup in oceans, production of micro-sized drops to mention few.
