New ME Faculty: Dr. Amneet Bhalla


Dr. Amneet Bhalla obtained his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from Northwestern University in 2013, and his Bachelors (2004-2008) and Masters (2009) in Mechanical Engineering from Indian Institute of Technology at Kharagpur. He has a postdoctoral training from University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (Mathematics Department) and Lawerence Berkeley National Laboratory (Computational Research Division). He also has an industrial experience at ExxonMobil Upstream Research Company where he worked as a computational research engineer.
In his research, Dr. Bhalla develops numerical methods and high performance computing techniques for computational fluid dynamics and computational fluid-structure interaction problems. The broad goals of his research include developing mathematical models for flow phenomena in engineering devices and processes, and to use novel simulations to interrogate the underlying physics of the problem, with the aim of improving and optimizing the engineering design.
