Danny Raj M (PI)
I am a DST-INSPIRE faculty hosted by the department of chemical engineering at IISc Bangalore. I work in the area of complex systems engineering where I study systems made up of many interacting entities or agents that exhibit collective phenomena. I apply an agent-based modeling strategy in combination with techniques from systems engineering like optimization, model based feedback control, etc., along with simple experiments, to understand and engineer the collective nature of several complex systems that include droplets in microchannels, organismal motion and traffic/pedestrian movement.
Prior to this, I was at IIT Madras where I completed my Doctoral work in the department of chemical engineering under Prof Raghunathan Rengaswamy on 'Drops as agents: understanding the complex behavior of drops in 2D microchannels'. I have a B Tech in Chemical engineering from AC Tech, Anna University, Chennai.
