ESR1 Abhilash Sreekumar
The University of Nottingham, U.K.

Abhilash holds an M.Sc. in Computational Sciences in Engineering from TU Braunschweig, Germany (2018) and a Bachelors in Mechanical Engineering from BITS Pilani Goa, India (2015) . He specialises in Numerical methods in Solid and Structural Mechanics. He has worked on non-linear Isogeometric (IGA) shell elements and multipatch parametrisation in IGA. He has also been a tutor for Linear and Non-Linear Continuum Mechanics and Numerical Methods in PDEs. He has joined the University of Nottingham as a Marie-Sklodowska Curie researcher in September 2018. Currently his primary interests involve coupled field analyses of porous composite structures.
ESR2 Arasan Uthayasuriyan
École nationale des travaux publics de l'État (ENTPE), France
The University of Nottingham, U.K.

Arasan secured a master's degree in Aerospace Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology Madras (2016). He is interested in the technical areas of aircraft structures and elasticity. He worked as an Engineer at EATON INDIA INNOVATION CENTRE and his primary assignments were designing aircraft engine seals. He has joined MATELYS-Research Lab as a Marie Skłodowska Curie researcher in October 2018. His research interests are in modelling vibroacoustic performance of complex structures including poroelastics.
ESR3 Vivek T. Ramamoorthy
The University of Nottingham, U.K.

Vivek holds an M. Tech in Mechanical Engineering Design from the Indian Institute of Technology Madras (2013-2015). He previously worked as a Scientific Officer at the Atomic Energy Regulatory Board, Govt. of India (2015-2018) in the Structural Analysis and Material Studies Section at Safety Research Institute. He joined the University of Nottingham as a Marie Curie fellow in October 2018 as part of Computational Optimisation and Learning Lab, School of Computer Science. His current research interests are at the intersection of computer science and mechanical engineering, specifically in artificial intelligence, metaheuristics, vibroacoustics of porous materials, and topology optimisation.
