# Amneet Bhalla

Amneet works on higher order finite volume discretization methods in the Applied Numerical Algorithms Group. His applications include fluid-structure interaction (FSI) problems using embedded boundaries for ocean flows and additive manufacturing. A major part of his research involves extending the embedded boundary Chombo (EB-Chombo) framework library for novel applications related to FSI problems. Prior to Berkeley Lab, Amneet was a postdoctoral fellow at UNC-Chapel 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 (2004-2009) for his bachelors and masters in Mechanical engineering .
