I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering. I am interested in a wide range of scientific problems, ranging from understanding how drops move on surfaces to large scale atmospheric flows. My students and I engage in theoretical, computational and experimental studies. I also run an experimental lab which houses some of the most advanced instruments to study fluid flows. For more details of my research, please see the Research page on this site.
To prospective members of my group:
If you are a student in IIT Hyderabad and wish to work in my group, please send me an email. I am always on the look out for bright and motivated students with strong foundations in fluid mechanics. Whether you are a UG student or a PG student, if you think you have the necessary skills and determination to pursue a serious scientific study in my area of research, write to me. If you wish to pursue graduate studies at IIT Hyderabad, you will have to first secure admission to the MTech or PhD program before you write to me.
I will soon have an opening for a JRF position in my group. If you are interested in this position, please write to me at hdixit_at_mae.iith.ac.in with a copy of your CV. The subject line should be "Interested in JRF opening". Tentatively, this position will start in May 2022 and the successful candidate will be expected to formally apply and register for the PhD program in the department.
Summer interships: I have no vacancies for an external summer intern this year. But interested UG students from IIT Hyderabad, especially ones finishing their 2nd year, are encouraged to write to me.
