Graduate Student Oden Institute
Afzal is interested in fluid dynamics and numerical methods along with their applications to investigate and solve real-world problems. He holds a bachelor's and master's in mechanical engineering and has over seven years of academic and industrial research experience.
Before joining the program, he was a Visiting Graduate Researcher at MIT Fluids lab. At Geological Fluid Mechanics Group led by Dr. Marc Hesse, he’s currently working on deriving the continuum models for multiphase flows in soft ductile rocks and subsequently developing numerical methods that have broad applications in solid earth and planetary sciences.
