Keynote Talks

During General Session presentations, world-leading researchers and scientists share their journeys of discovery and progress through precision multiphysics simulation. We will also hear from the makers of COMSOL, as they provide insight into their vision and present sneak previews of upcoming versions of the software.

Dr. Rajveer S. Shekhawat, Secure Meters Ltd.

Innovating Product Designs Using Multiphysics Modeling

Dr. Shekhawat is currently the General Manager for New Products Development at Secure Meters Ltd., Udaipur. Prior to this, he was with CEERI, Pilani for 23 years. He has a Ph.D., MS, M. Sc. (Physics) and BE (EEE) from BITS, Pilani. He is the recipient of several honours including the DAAD Fellowship, Germany and National Science Talent Fellowship. His areas of research include Ultrasonic Transducers and Flow Measurements, Acoustics and Computational Fluid Dynamics.

Dr. K. K. Singh, Bhabha Atomic Research Centre

Two Phase Flow and Multiphysics Simulations in COMSOL

Dr. Singh has been working at the Chemical Engineering Division, Bhabha Atomic Research Centre, Mumbai since 2000. He has a Ph.D. from the Department of Chemical Engineering, IIT Bombay. He is a recipient of the Homi Bhabha Medal of Bhabha Atomic Research Centre in year 2000, Young Engineer Award of the Department of Atomic Energy in year 2008 and Award for Excellence in Thesis Work at IIT Bombay. His research interests are in Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) modelling of process equipment, droplet hydrodynamics, microfluidics and chemical micro processing.

Dr. Asim Tewari, Indian Institute of Technology - Bombay

Modeling Micromechanics of Eigenstrain in Heterogeneous Media

Dr. Tewari is an Associate Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at IIT Bombay. Prior to this he was a staff researcher at the General Motors Global R&D Center, Bangalore. He graduated with a B.Tech degree from IIT Kanpur followed by an MS and Ph.D. from Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, USA. His area of research is in mathematical models for microstructural-mechanics. He has extensively published in international journals and has 10 international patent applications. His pioneering work in 3D microscopy has been widely cited including reproduction in ASM handbooks. He is on the review board of Metallurgical and Materials Transactions and is a reviewer for several international journals, to name a few prominent ones: Proceedings of Royal Society of London, Acta Materialia, and International Journal of Fracture.

Vineet Dravid, COMSOL

Introduction to 4.3a

Vineet Dravid completed his PhD from Purdue University in 2006, specializing in CFD. He has been working with COMSOL since 2006, first in its Boston office and then in the Indian office since 2009.
