- Data Visualization: [Oct 2000 - present] This project involves creating architectures and algorithms for parallel processing of large unstructured meshes. The project is being implemented in C++ with VTK (Visualization Toolkit) and MPI (Message Passing Interface) as the backend libraries. Ref: Will Schroeder (firstname.lastname@example.org).
- UDP Simulation: [Fall 2000] Taken up as a part of course project, it was required to simulate flow of UDP packets across a hierarchical network structure consisting of 25^3 nodes. The goal was to analyze the performance of this simulated network across a range of parameters, include: traffic distributions (Poisson, Lognormal), traffic bit rate, and node and router/switch buffer sizes. The simulation was implemented in C on a quad processor system. Ref: Christopher Carothers (email@example.com)
- Generic Longest common Subsequence: [Fall 2000] This project involved writing a generic library for identifying the longest common subsequence of two input sequences. This project was implemented in C++. Ref: Prof. David Musser (firstname.lastname@example.org).

Parallel Unstructured Grid Direct Monte Carlo Simulation of Rarefied Gas Flow
In this study an unstructured grid based solver was designed to simulate rarefied gas flow using the probabilistic Monte Carlo method. The overhead associated with unstructured grid was considerably reduced through the use of a localized data structure. This also led to improved particle/molecule tracking, which are extremely compute intensive. Furthermore, a dynamic moving mesh scheme was developed to accommodate run-time surface deformation due to etching and/or deposition processes. The code was paralleized to run on parallel machines using the message passing paradigm (MPI) and single program multiple data (SPMD) model. It was shown that speedup of upto 11 could be achieved on 16 processors. The code was tested and run on a 32 (16 node) CPU Shared/(simulated distributed)-Memory SGI Origin 2000.
B.Tech project: [Dec'97] Ref: Prof. G.R. Shevare; firstname.lastname@example.org
Post-Processing in CFD
The problem involved the solutions of flow visualization problems for data in 2-D and 3-D domains and on 3-D surfaces. Given the velocity nodes the visualization of flow was achieved through generation of streamlines. Two algorithms for data on unstructured grid were developed. The second algorithm although comparatively slower generated accurate streamlines for highly turning flows. The algorithms for the above work were implemented in ANSI C.
Seminar Delivered: [Jan'97 - Apr'97] Ref: Prof V. Ukadgaonkar; email@example.com
A literature survey on Finite Element Method
The discussion was based on the need to investigate the many different ways to solve partial differential equations by numerical methods. An in-depth analysis of Finite Element Method was carried out. At the end it was compared with other numerical methods such as Boundary Element Method and a `Meshless' Finite Element Method.
Robotics Design Project: [95-96] Ref: Prof. C. Amarnath: firstname.lastname@example.org
I was member of the winning team in the robotics design contest, Yantriki, for two successive years (1995 and 1996), organized by Department of Mechanical Engineering, IIT Bombay. Fast and accurate machines were developed that competed with other machines in miniature soccer (Yantriki'95) and basketball (Yantriki'96) games.
Optimal data structure for Grid Generation: [Dec'96] Ref: Prof. G.R. Shevare; email@example.com
Developed a symmetric data structure for 2-dimensional triangulation in which the data structure was optimized with respect to storage space and retrieval time. The algorithms were implemented in ANSI C.
2-D Triangulation: [May'96] Ref: Prof. G.R. Shevare; firstname.lastname@example.org
Delaunay triangulation for a 2-D surface was achieved by using extended Watson Algorithm. It was a part of research program funded by Aeronautical Research and Development Board (ARDB). The algorithms were implemented in ANSI C.
Machine Design Project: Road-Marker [Jan-Apr 97] Ref: Prof. C. Amarnath: email@example.com
Taken up as a part of course project; the task was to design a reliable and an accurate machine that could mark equidistant dots on the road at practically any speed of operation. My project entry won the third prize in the contest following the regular submissions.
