Monash University


I am an undergraduate student in my third year of Bachelor of Aerospace Engineering and Bachelor of Science at Monash University. I have received Dean’s list Award for achieving an average of 85% in my science units for the years 2012 and 2013. I have done volunteer research work on Transmission Electron Microscopy with School of Physics at Monash University in winter 2014. I recently received a Summer Vacation Research Scholarship from Australian Mathematical Science Institute (AMSI) for my proposed project on Wave particle duality in multiple bouncing fluid droplets which I will be doing with Dr. Anja Slim in summer 2014-15. My study interests includes Fluid Dynamics, Lagrangian and Hamiltonian Formulation of Classical Mechanics, Chaotic classical dynamical systems, Foundations of Quantum Mechanics, Differential Geometry, Real and Complex Analysis. In my spare time I like to read books on popular science, watch documentaries, watch and play cricket, play badminton and listen to music.

Wave particle Duality of multiple bouncing fluid droplets

If a bath of fluid is vibrated vigorously then a droplet of the same fluid can be made to bounce on the bath and it also generates waves on the bath. These droplets have been observed to mimic various quantum behaviour at macroscopic level such as wave/particle duality in double slit experiment with fluids, quantized orbits and tunnelling. It has been observed that when two droplets interact they either scatter or lock into orbit. This project will investigated on what happens when three droplets interact, it will include modelling the dynamics for multiple droplets and using numerical programs like MATLAB to solve, investigate possible behaviours and to compare the predictions with the experiment.
