Dr. Taraprasad Bhowmick is a postdoc at the Max Planck Institute for Dynamics and Self-Organization, Göttingen. He was awarded a DFG Walter Benjamin Position at the Institute for the Dynamics of Complex Systems, University of Göttingen, Germany during 2021 - 2023. He received his PhD in Physics in 2021 from the Polytechnic University of Turin, Italy (Politecnico di Torino). His PhD research was on the numerical study of cloud microphysics using direct numerical simulations in the EU Horizon2020 ITN COMPLETE. He received the Master of Science (MS) degree in Mining Engineering in 2015 from the University of Alaska Fairbanks, USA. His MS research was on the CFD dispersion modeling of openpit mining dusts in the Arctic environments under a NIOSH, CDC grant. He received a Bachelor of Engineering (BE) degree in Mining Engineering in 2013 from the Indian Institute of Engineering Science and Technology, Shibpur.
