Laxman completed B.Tech in Mechanical Engineering from Veer Surendra Sai University of Technology (VSSUT), Burla. The pursuit for knowledge and learning led him to join M.Tech program at Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Bhubaneswar. His dissertation work was on “Simulation of Mixed convection inside a square cavity partially filled with porous medium”and the results have been communicated to an international journal. He has also co-authored a work on “Transient buoyancy-opposed double diffusive convection of micropolar fluids in a square enclosure” published in Elsevier. His strong aptitude towards understanding the symbiosis between fluid dynamics and heat transfer in real life problems motivated him to join PhD program at IITB-Monash Research Academy. He will be working on particles transport during evaporation of sessile droplets on a solid surface under the supervision of Asst. Professor Rajneesh Bhardwaj (IITB), Assoc. Professor Adrian Neild (Monash University) and Dr. Tuncay Alan (Monash University). Apart from academics, he takes interest in swimming and badminton.
