Adithya Gurumurthy is a third year PhD student from the department of Mechanical Engineering at North Carolina State university, Raleigh, North Carolina, USA. He received his Bachelor of Engineering degree in Mechanical Engineering at Anna University, India, in 2015 and completed his MS from North Carolina State University, in 2018. He is interested in fluid mechanics, computational fluid dynamics and applied mathematics. His research is pivoted by his passion to utilize computational fluid dynamics in the field of biomedical engineering, particularly for pulmonary drug delivery applications. Currently, he is a graduate research assistant at the Computational Multi-Physics Laboratories led by Dr. Clement Kleinstreuer at the department of Mechanical Engineering. His ongoing projects relate to the computational analyses of targeted pulmonary drug delivery, multi-phase modelling of aerosol transport in human upper lung airways and optimization of inhaler mouthpiece and particle-injection conditions for improved performance. Aside from research, he is a passionate musician and an active member of NCSU college squash team.
