Prof. Siddhartha Das joined the Department of Mechanical Engineering, University of Maryland, College Park in March, 2014 as an assistant professor. He received his Ph.D. from the Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur in 2010 in the area of theoretical microfluidics. Following his Ph.D., Prof. Das joined the Physics of Fluids Group in University of Twente, the Netherlands as a Postdoc and worked on surface nanobubbles, capillarity and soft wetting. After his stint in the Netherlands, Prof. Das went for his second Postdoc in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, University of Alberta, Canada. In Alberta, Prof. Das was honored with the Banting Postdoctoral Fellowship, the most prestigious postdoctoral fellowship of Canada. His research interests span different areas of micro-nanoscale fluid mechanics and interactions of soft matter and complex interfaces with fluid mechanics.
