Nandkishor Nere holds a Ph.D. degree in chemical engineering with over 12 years of combined academic and industrial research experience. He has developed a new constitutive equation for the eddy viscosity to model turbulence for the prediction of single-phase flow pattern in stirred tank. Furthermore, he has devised an efficient computational methodology to couple computational fluid dynamics (CFD) with population balance modeling (PBM) to predict drop-size distributions in liquid-liquid dispersions in a turbulent pipe flow. Presently, he is working for Abbott Laboratories, USA in the area of pharmaceutical process development with allied focus on the application of CFD, PBM, and applied mathematics for the understanding and optimization of processes involving complex reactions, mixing, crystallization, drying, and milling. He has coauthored over sixteen research papers, delivered over fifteen conference presentations, and contributed a book chapter on Mathematics in Chemical Engineering in Albright’s Chemical Engineering, edited by Albright, L. CRC Press, 2008.
