Dr Narsing K. Jha


  • 2016 - present   : Research Associate, DAMTP, University
  • 2015 - 2016       : Post-Doc, Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore
  • 2009 - 2015       : PhD, Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore


Narsing studied two phase turbulent flows during his PhD at the Indian Institute of science, Bangalore. He then moved to the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics, University of Cambridge for his post-doctoral work on air curtains funded by EPSRC. He is now carrying out laboratory experiments to better understand the dynamics of a human walking through the air-curtain in a doorway, and also the mixing in stratified flows and jets. Narsing is broadly interested in two phase turbulent flows, mixing in turbulent flows, flow in blood vessels, droplet dynamics in clouds, and flow over bluff bodies.
