Dr. Parag has done BE and ME in Mechanical Engineering from University of Pune in 2003 and 2006. Subsequently, did his PhD in Aerodynamics from Department of Aerospace Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology Bombay (IIT Bombay, Mumbai) in 2012.
Dr. Parag worked on number of government sponsored projects related to fixed wing UAVs and flapping wing MAV development. Primarily he is involved in wind tunnel characterization of fixed and flapping wing MAVs using various types of force balances, surface pressure measurements, flow field mapping and flow visualization technique. Apart from the sponsored projects, he is involved in knowledge generation and knowledge development in the area of UAVs/MAVs. He defines different research potential problems and execute them through independent project proposals or define them as a M. Tech or summer intern projects depending upon the quantity and degree of challenge involve in solving the problems.
His research interests are fluid-structure interaction problem in flapping wing MAVs, atmospheric turbulence and its effect on UAVs, flow control, low Re flows etc.
