Bio-sketch: Rajeev K. Jaiman is currently an Associate Professor and NSERC/Seaspan Industrial Chair in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of British Columbia (UBC), Vancouver, Canada. Prior to his current appointment at UBC, he was an assistant professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the National University of Singapore (NUS). Before joining NUS, he was the Director of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) Development at Altair Engineering, Inc., Mountain View, California.  The CFD technologies that Dr. Jaiman has developed are routinely used in marine/offshore, wind turbine, nuclear reactors, automotive and aerospace industries. Dr. Jaiman earned his first degree in Aerospace Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology, Mumbai. He received his master’s and doctorate degrees from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC).  His research interests include fluid-structure interaction, computational fluid dynamics, finite element analysis,  data-driven modeling and physics-based machine learning. He is currently an Associate Editor of ASME-OMAE Journal, a senior member of AIAA and members of ASME, SNAME, USACM, APS, AAM, and SIAM
