About me

I am currently a Post Doc at the Center of Mathematics for Applications, a center of excellence at the University of Oslo in Norway. My mentors are Kenneth H. Karlsen and Nils Henrik Risebro at the CMA. I completed my PhD in Applied Mathematics in 2005 at the Indian Institute of Science and The TIFR center in Bangalore, India. My thesis supervisor was Prof. Adimurthi at the TIFR center. My PhD thesis is entitled "Analysis and Numerical Approximation of Conservation laws with discontinuous coefficients". I was born in Bhubaneswar, Orissa, India and completed my schooling and undergraduate education there. I completed my Masters Degree in Mathematical Sciences in 2003 with my Masters thesis being entitled "Scalar Conservation laws with Discontinuous flux.". I have been a visiting research student at the project ESTIME at INRIA, Rocquencourt in Paris, France. You can take a look at my CV for more details. Some non-academics interests are in my Personal page.
