Prof. Renu Dhadwal

Ph.D. in Industrial Mathematics from Technical University of Kaiserslautern, Germany; MSc. in Mathematics from IIT Madras; Masters in Industrial Mathematics from Technical University of Kaiserslautern (Germany)


Dr. Renu Dhadwal has completed her Ph.D. in Industrial Mathematics from the Technical University of Kaiserslautern, Germany. She worked on an Industrial problem for the company Freudenberg &Co. in collaboration with ITWM (Fraunhofer Institute for Industrial Mathematics, http://www.itwm.fraunhofer.de/en.html). Her doctoral research was funded partially by both DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service) and Freudenberg. Her strengths comprise of Mathematical modeling of industrial problems arising in viscoelastic flows of Non-Newtonian fluids such as molten polymers. Her areas of expertise include, Non-Newtonian Fluid Dynamics, Numerical methods in Ordinary and Partial Differential Equations and Modeling of polymer flows.
