and tuning of scientific applications & libraries on next generation HPC hardware
I am a University of Michigan graduate with a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering and Scientific Computing (joint degree). I offer 5+ years of experience in research and development of GPU-accelerated numerical algorithms and applications in high-performance computing (HPC) fields within scientific computing and data analytics. I have domain expertise in computational physics, with a focus in areas related to fluid mechanics, turbulence modeling, and multiphase flows. My reseach interests lie in the intersection of:
Emphasis on fluid dynamics of complex flow problems that include turbulent boundary layers, flow modulation and separation control, turbulent mixing and similar flow set ups.
Develop and use high-order numerical methods based on discontinuous approaches for complex high-speed and/or high-energy flows with shocks and discontinuities.
Develop high-order numerical models with large-scale compute capabilities on emerging HPC architectures, with a focus on performance and stack protability of the code.
Year 2020 in Review
2020 required changing our conventional ways to more creative and out-of-the-box approaches. Virtual meets and greets became the norm. I defended my Ph.D. in Summer 2020 virtually on Zoom, attended conferences and workshops in a virtual setting, rejoiced watching my cousin getting married on screen, interviewed for full-time positions on MS Teams, and started my new position remotely.

Additional Background on Education and Professional Experience
I have a broad educational background spanning the fundamentals of engineering to the depths of scientific computing.
Ph.D. Mechanical Engineering2016-2020
Mechanical Mengineering, University of Michigan
Thesis Title: Large-Scale Simulations of Complex Turbulent Flows: Modulation of Turbulent Boundary Layer Separation and
Optimization of Discontinuous Galerkin Methods for Next-Generation HPC Platforms.
This ressearch explores topics related to Turbulent boundary layers, Large-eddy simulations, passive flow control, discontinuous Galerkin methods, extreme-scale computations, arithmetic intensity and power-performance balance.

Ph.D. Scientific Computing (Joint Degree)2017-2020
Michigan Institute for Computational Discovery and Engineering (MICDE), University of Michigan
This program is intended for students who will make extensive use of large-scale computation, computational methods, or algorithms for advanced computer architectures in their doctoral studies.Details +
Mathematics, University of Michigan
I graduated from the Applied Mathematics Program with concentration in topics related to partial differential equations, numerical methods and analysis, and scientific computing.Details +
M.S.E Mechanical Engineering2014-2015
Mechanical Mengineering, University of Michigan
Masters Thesis Title: Large-Eddy Simulations of Flow Over A Backward-Facing Ramp With Vortex Generators.
This ressearch explores the separation of flow over a backward-facing ramp with a mean turbulent boundary layer as inflow with no turbulent fluctuations. We reduced the separated region by employing passive vortex generators. This study used the Large-Eddy Simulations approach.

Graduate Engineer Trainee
Godrej & Boyce Mfg. Co. Ltd.
In the Corporate Procurement and EXIM Services Division my responsibilities included capital item procurement for internal businesses and special projects. I built financial models for predictions of capital costs based on historical data and purchases that increased savings on budget by 15% for recurring capital items.More Details
Godrej & Boyce Mfg. Co. Ltd.
As part of my B.E. project for undergraduate studies, I interned in the Security Solutions Division, where, I worked on the analysis of manufacturing process for the production of security safes and safety doors. My B.E. project used, Process Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (PFMEA) to identify the main sources of quality degradation. The new designed process plan imporved the throughput by 60% and reduced downtown time on many stations of the assembly line.More Details
- B.E. Project
Summer Intern in the Quality Assurance Department of Switchboards and Circuit Breakers Division. Used metrology to inspect material supplied by vendors and collaborators. Designed and implemented a number of jigs and fixtures to facilitate faster inspection rate and reduce downtime due to low grade materials.More Details
My Featured Presentation
Dust is everywhere – not just in your attic or under your bed, but also in outer space. To some astronomers, dust can be annoying as it blocks the light of distant stars, but to others it can be a tool to study the history of our universe, galaxy, and Solar System. For example, astronomers have been trying to explain why some recently discovered distant, but young, galaxies contain massive amounts of dust. These observations indicate that type II supernovae – explosions of stars more than ten times as massive as the Sun – produce copious amounts of dust, but how and when they do so is not well understood. Large-scale numerical simulations of core-collapse simulations enable us to understand and uncover such complex phenomenons.

" I mentored Suyash during the Co-Design Summer School 2019 at LANL. Suyash was a serious and highly motivated student that always searched to outperform himself. The context of the CDSS was the perfect environment to put in application the multiple fields of expertise of Suyash to help the whole class to move forward and find solutions."Via LinkedIn
" I’ve seen Suyash go above and beyond, performing quality research. I mentored him on a research project on performance and stack portability at the Los Alamos National Laboratory. He’s also eager to learn new things."Via LinkedIn
" Suyash is reliable, dedicated and eternally upbeat. His ability to analyse customer requirements and supplier offers are unparalleled, and it is because of his excellence in this area that I repeatedly asked him to mentor new employees in our dept. Suyash multitasks effectively and is able to handle a high-volume workload..."Via LinkedIn
"Suyash is very calm and serious person with occasional bursts of fun. He is an amazing person to be with. Excellent personality and very good in almost all the fields, be it sports or academics or practical applications. A very passionate guy for any work he did or does. Never seen him shy of responsibilities and always helpful to ones in need."Via LinkedIn
