Molecular Engineering and Liquid Thermal (MELT) Laboratory
Dr. Sumith Yesudasan
I am excited to announce that there are several research opportunities available in our lab for enthusiastic and dedicated undergraduate and graduate students. These projects fall under the area of computational studies and experimental methods, ranging from electronics cooling solutions to advanced health technology. If you have a passion for pushing the boundaries of scientific understanding, this is a great chance to advance your research skills.
The available research topics are as follows:
Radiative Cooling of Space Electronics (Experimental and Computational, Graduate level): This research project is a hybrid of experimental and computational work. The focus lies in examining radiative cooling methods for electronics used in space applications. A keen interest in physics, space technology, and thermal management would be advantageous for this research topic.
Machine Learning based Force Field development (Computational, Graduate level): This research is aimed at developing coarse grained biomolecules to simulate the blood clotting process under normal physiological and under specific pathological conditions. The students will use various hybrid optimization techniques using the meta heuristic based approaches.
Micro Jet Impingement Cooling of Electronic Chips (Computational, Under Graduate level): This project involves a deep dive into the computational aspects of cooling electronic chips, particularly focusing on micro jet impingement. If you have an interest in thermal dynamics and its applications in the modern electronics industry, this could be an excellent project for you.
If you are intrigued by any of these topics and are interested in joining our research team, I encourage you to send me an email detailing your interest along with your most recent CV. Please clearly state the project(s) you are interested in and why you believe you are a good fit.
