Research Interests

Professor Bagchi and his students are engaged in Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) modeling and simulation in the broad area of micro- and nano-fluidics, bio-fluid mechanics, multi-scale problems in fluid mechanics and biological flows, multiphase flows, particulate flows, interfacial flow, turbulent and complex flows, and rheology. The research is highly multidisciplinary in nature, and lies at the interface of transport phenomena, computational science, biomedical science, and physics. We develop our own computer models using state-of-the-art methodologies, and perform large-scale simulation and analysis on multiprocessor supercomputers to understand/discover new physical mechanisms underlying various complex biological phenomena at micro- and nano-scales. Examples of current research projects are:

  • Microhydrodynamics of blood cells, capsules and vesicles,
  • Cellular interactions in physiological and microfluidic scenario,
  • Dynamics and rheology of cellular and deformable particulate suspension,
  • Drug dispersion in blood,
  • Multiscale modeling of active cellular motion.
