I am Udit, a research fellow in Shock Tunnel Laboratory, Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Bombay. I obtained Bachelor of Technology degree in Mechanical Engineering from IIT Bombay in 2012. I find myself fascinated by the fields of Gas Dynamics and Computational Fluid Dynamics. I am particularly interested in the areas of derivative fuels, combustion analysis and design of combustion chamber. It is in this context that I am applying for graduate studies towards MS/PhD in Mechanical Engineering Department at Stanford University. I look forward to imbibe from the best, which had prompted me to apply to Stanford University, having had this opportunity with the best in India.

During my freshman year, I joined the Data Acquisition team of the Formula Society of Automotive Engineers (FSAE)* group at IIT. My exposure to research as an undergraduate first took place working for FSAE. My team participated in the FSAE competition at Silverstone, UK in 2009. The FSAE competition had student teams from all over the world who designed, fabricated, tested and race formula-student cars. I was actively involved in the programming and set-up of an ATmega16 microcontroller to transmit engine parameters from the car. This experience imbibed in me a spirit of team work.

In summer 2010, I joined the Engineering Research Center of Tata Motors Ltd., Pune as a research intern. I worked in ____ team and designed a new hood hinge mechanism for an upcoming car model comprising a new motion
