Dr. Rajeev K. Jaiman is currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the National University of Singapore (NUS). Prior to joining NUS in 2012, Dr. Jaiman was the Director of CFD Development at Altair Engineering, Inc., Mountain View, California. He was responsible for the development of commercial finite element based CFD solver, AcuSolve. His contributions on coupled fluid-structure interaction modeling have become known as a standard for an excellence in both industry and academia. Prior to Altair, he was a Lead CFD Developer at ACUSIM Software, Inc from 2007-2010. The technologies that Dr. Jaiman has developed are being used in wind turbine, offshore oil/gas, nuclear reactors, automotive and aerospace industries.

Dr. Jaiman earned his Bachelor of Technology degree in Aerospace Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology, Mumbai in 2000. Dr. Jaiman received his master's and doctorate degrees in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2003 and 2007, respectively. In 2005, he was awarded by the Strehlow Memorial "Outstanding Researcher" recognition. In 2002 and 2004, he was nominated as fellow of Computational Science and Engineering (CSE) department. Dr. Jaiman has served as a reviewer of many journals and conference proceedings. The results from his research have been presented in various conferences and published in leading peer-reviewed journals and conference proceedings.
