Viraja has a Master's degree in Aerospace Engineering and has expertise in Unconventional Computational Fluid Dynamics and Acoustics. Her primary research area focused on the usage of Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics-based on the Lagrangian approach in Acoustics relate to resonating shock tubes to observe and capture nonlinear phenomena. Viraja’s work focuses on particle and control volume method to study feasibility models of generating bubbles and addressing simulation issues in real-time. She is working on enhancing visualization techniques for experiments through state of the art PIV (Particle Image velocimetry) approach. Apart from her research, she was part of student involvement at Auburn University to recruit international students and was an active award winning student leader.
