Dr. Das is currently working as a scientist in a computational fluid dynamics (CFD) company in California, USA. As of now, his focus is on the applicability of immersed boundary methods in complicated industrial problems. He is also keenly interested in the theoretical side of CFD, especially in turbulence modeling.
