Bishakhdatta is an ARC Future Fellow and Senior Lecturer in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Melbourne.
Biography He received a Bachelor degree in Mechanical Engineering from the Jadavpur University in Kolkata, India in 2006, and an M.S.

degree in Engineering Science, majoring in Fluid Mechanics, from the Jawaharlal Nehru Centre for Advanced Scientific Research, Bangalore, in 2007. He was then awarded a University of California Graduate Fellowship to pursue his doctoral research at the University of California, San Diego. He received an M.S. (2010) and Ph.D. (2012) from UCSD and was awarded the Andreas Acrivos Award for Outstanding Dissertation in Fluid Dynamics from the American Physical Society. In 2012 he moved to Australia to pursue his postdoctoral research at the Australian National University. He was a Discovery Early Career Fellow (the Australian Research Council) from 2013-2016 and RJL Hawke Fellow (the Australian Antarctic Science) from 2017-2018 at ANU before joining the University of Melbourne in 2019.

Research Overview

Bishakh's research interest and experience lie in the areas of geophysical fluid dynamics, physical oceanography and computational fluid dynamics. He has expertise in designing and developing cutting-edge computer code using finite-difference and spectral methods to model geophysical and environmental flows. His current research interests are nonlinear internal waves in the ocean, turbulent convection, modelling of Antarctic ice melting and the Southern Ocean dynamics.
