Dr Samik Bhattacharya

Dr. Bhattacharya is an assistant professor at UCF who specializes in experimental fluid mechanics. His work is particularly focused on unsteady hydro and aerodynamics, as well as flow controls. He utilizes advanced optical diagnostics, such as particle image velocimetry (PIV), particle tracking velocimetry (PTV) for investigating these flows. He is also investigating problems in microfluidics for drug delivery. Bhattacharya has previously collaborated with DLR scientist, Dr. Daniel Schanz, to investigate Pressure-field extraction from Lagrangian flow measurements and 4D-PTV.
