Personal profile


Dr. Ajay B Harish is a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in the Modeling and Simulation Group at the Department of Mechanical, Aerospace and Civil Engineering of the Unviersity of Manchester. 

My expertise lies in the development of numerical methods to leverage high-performance computing. In this regard, I develop data-driven and physics-based simulation models to study uncertainty quantification in problems related to fluid-structure interaction.

The developed models use theories of continuum mechanics at various length and timescales. I use computational techniques like the Neural networks, PINNs, Finite Element Method (structures) and Finite Volume Method (fluids) to build research tools that leverage high-performance computing.
