Amneet Bhalla
Amneet works on higher order finite volume discretization methods in the Applied Numerical Algorithms Group. His applications include fluidstructure interaction (FSI) problems using embedded boundaries for additive manufacturing. A major part of his research involves extending the embedded boundary Chombo (EBChombo) framework library for novel applications related to FSI problems. Prior to Berkeley Lab, Amneet was a postdoctoral fellow at UNCChapel Hill in Mathematics department. He also an industrial experience at ExxonMobil as a computational research engineer. Amneet got his Ph.D in mechanical engineering from Northwestern university in 2013. He went to Indian Institute of Technology  Kharagpur (20042009) for his bachelors and masters in Mechanical engineering .
