Hi I’m Fayaz Rasheed. I am an expert in fluid mechanics/ aerodynamics with significant experience in both computational and experimental fluid dynamics. Over the years I have worked on exciting projects from around the globe. My expertise spans domains of aerospace, nuclear fusion and fission, Machine learning and wind engineering.
I have degrees from some of the oldest tech universities in the world. I have a Ph.D. in Aeronautical Engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (Est 1924) in Troy, NY, holds Master of Science and a Master of Philosophy degrees in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Manchester (Est 1924 as Mechanics’ Institute in Manchester ) in the United Kingdom besides a Bachelor of Engineering in Aeronautical Engineering from Anna University (founded as College of Engineering, Guindy in 1794) in India where I graduated with distinction.
I had the privilege of being one of the three engineers (along with two NASA engineers) onboard Zero-G flight to achieve the first successful controlled pinning of a water droplet in microgravity. My work on fluidic oscillators led to the discovery of a new concept of resonance-based fluidic oscillation, which enables higher frequency outputs than traditional feedback loop methods.
