Shayan Palit

Title: Sales and Marketing Engineer

Date of Joining: March 3, 2008

Education: Btech. Mechanical Engineering – IIT Madras, 2005; MS Mechanical Engineering – Georgia Tech, 2007

Shayan Palit: CFD Sales Engineer
Shayan shows his computational side.

Why did you choose CFD as a career path?

I was always interested in fluids and heat transfer since my undergraduate days. Over time I realized that the computational side was more appealing than the experimental side, hence the decision. I find the computational side more appealing because it gives results faster, and many times it is easier to tweak the parameters a little and learn a lot about the problem from the simulation results. Also I love programming.

What do you like so far about working at Flow Science?

I think the best thing about working at Flow Science is the people. Everyone here is very friendly and helpful. Also, it is a great atmosphere and you feel like you are part of one big family.

You were last living in Atlanta, Georgia, which is quite a change from Santa Fe, NM. What do you like or dislike about Santa Fe?

I think Santa Fe is very beautiful. I was skeptical before coming here, but have fallen in love with this place after coming here.
