Prahlad Kulkarni is a master's student at Purdue University. He graduated from R V College of Engineering in 2016 with a Bachelor's Degree in Mechanical Engineering. As a part of his undergraduate research, he analytically modelled a Sinusoidal forced convective system to enhance surface heat transfer and worked on Fin geometry optimization to maximize efficiency. He is currently working with Dr Amy Marconnet on Passive thermal management using Phase change materials at the Marconnet thermal and energy conversion lab.
