About the Faculty

Vaibhav Joshi is currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering. His research focuses on high-fidelity computational modeling of fluid-structure interaction.
Prior to his current association with BITS, he was a postdoctoral research fellow in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at The University of British Columbia (UBC), Vancouver, Canada. He was in-charge of the Computational Multiphysics Laboratory at UBC and worked on developing flexible multibody fluid-structure interaction framework for bio-inspired flying vehicles. Before joining as a post-doc, he carried out his doctoral studies at the National University of Singapore (NUS) and worked as a research engineer at the Keppel-NUS Corporate Laboratory. There, he developed a computational framework to model two-phase fluid-structure interaction, motivated by the coupled offshore vessel-riser system subjected to turbulent ocean current and free-surface waves. He received his Bachelor of Technology degree in Mechanical Engineering from Vellore Institute of Technology University, Vellore, India.
He is currently a member of American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) and American Physical Society (APS).
