Lokesh Silwal

Bachelors in Engineering - Mechanical Engineering - Tribhuwan University, Nepal

Lokesh’s research is on the interactional aerodynamics of multi-rotor configuration helicopters. He is working on the flowfield and performance characterization of one of the multi rotor configuration, coaxial rotors using experimental techniques. During his free time, he likes to play either soccer, tennis or guitar. He also likes to travel and hiking.

Paul Swiney

Bachelor of Science - Mechanical Engineering - Auburn University, USA

Paul is currently working on developing techniques for large-field volumetric flow measurements using helium-filled soap bubbles as tracer particles during particle image velocimetry (PIV) measurements. He is also working on analyzing the aerodynamic response of hawks to vertical gusts. In his free time, Paul enjoys fishing, hiking, and cooking, as well as playing with his border collie.

Abbishek Gururaj

Masters in Engineering - Aerospace Engineering - Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur

Bachelors in Engineering - Aerospace Engineering - University of Petroleum and Energy Studies

Abbishek's current research focuses on the development of a rotating frame of reference velocity field measurement technique to study the flow over the rotating blades. During his leisure time, he likes to read adventure and mystery novels, listen to classical music and watch documentaries on world history.

Bipin Tiwari

Bachelors in Engineering - Mechanical Engineering - Tribhuwan University, Nepal

Bipin was an Assistant lecturer in Kathford International College, Nepal before starting his graduate school at Auburn University in Aug 2018. His current research is primarily focused on biofluid mechanics. He is currently working on understanding the influence of flow characteristics like wall shear stress on the onset and progression of diseases such as Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease ( COPD). In his free time he likes reading, playing soccer and table tennis, and also likes traveling and hiking.

Karyle Munz

Bachelors of Mechanical Engineering (BME) and Minor in Physics - Auburn University - USA

Karlyle’s current research focuses on the aeroacoustic characteristics of single and multirotor coaxial systems. The goal of his research is to decrease the acoustic signature of unmanned air vehicles. Through this research he hopes to solve some of the problems created by the increased prevalence of drones. Karlyle plays the piano in his free time, and trumpet for the Auburn Knights Orchestra. He also enjoys camping, hiking, and playing soccer.
