Profile:

Returning student with some work experience

Research Description:

I am interested in using computational fluid dynamics for the thermal hydraulics modeling of the Missouri S&T Research Reactor.

Funding:

My graduate program is fully supported by the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation, Government of Malaysia.

On Tutoring:

As a student who is currently working on a research project, I realize that having good writing and verbal skills is vital in communicating our ideas to others. As a tutor, I am happy to help you with your writing, to get you to connect with your audience, and get your message across. Your writing will be the focus of each session.

Hobbies:

In my spare time, I enjoy reading novels (spy/drama/thriller novels). My all-time favorite books are The Alchemist by Paolo Coelho, Blink  by Malcolm Gladwell, and If Tomorrow Comes by Sidney Sheldon. I also enjoy the outdoors, traveling to different places, and experiencing new cultures. I hope one day to travel to Bhutan.

About Myself: Vibin

 

I am an MS student within the electrical engineering program. I finished my BS in India last summer. I crossed the oceans to reach MS&T in Fall 2012. I am working on implementing non-linear control methods in the field of power system transient stability.

Tutoring:

As both a high school and an undergraduate student, I had experience writing papers and essays. I understand the difficulties one faces when writing these pieces. As part of a social organization, I tutored school children where I learned what a fun, rewarding experience tutoring can be.  I also found I enjoy sharing my knowledge with others.

I am excited to be working with graduate students to help them more effectively communiate their ideas.

Hobbies:

I enjoy spending my free time with my friends. I also enjoy reading.  I especially love to read fiction from all parts of the world, as they offer a great deal of insight into various cultures and traditions. I enjoy interacting with people from different countries and, particularly, trying the different foods from these countries. I also like to listen to music and love cooking so much that, if I hadn’t taken up engineering, I would have considered being a chef!

Graduate tutors are available Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays to help you improve the quality of your writing.  If you’d like to schedule a tutoring session, please email emrt24@mst.edu.
