Dr. Apte is professor of Mechanical Engineering at the Oregon State University. He grew up in the city of Pune (India) and received his BS (1994) in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Pune (CoEP), MS (1996) from the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore (IISC) and the doctorate degree in Mechanical and Nuclear Engineering from Pennsylvania State University (PennState) (2000). Following his Ph.D., Dr. Apte joined the Center for Turbulence Research (CTR) and the Center for Integrated Turbulence Simulations (CITS) at Stanford University as an Engineering Research Associate. He joined Oregon State University in October 2005.

Dr. Apte's research interests are in the areas of computational modeling and analysis of two-phase turbulent flows. His research group develops new algorithms for predictive simulations of two-phase flows using Direct Numerical Simulation (DNS) or Large-eddy Simulation (LES) techniques.

Dr. Apte is currently a member of the American Physical Society (APS-DFD), American Geophysical Union (AGU), and the Institute for Liquid Atomization and Spray Systems (ILASS). He is also a reviewer of several top journals in the thermal fluid sciences, such as Journal of Fluid Mechanics, Journal of Computational Physics, International Journal of Multiphase Flow, Physical Review Fluids, Journal of Fluids Engineering, among others.

Dr. Apte loves distance running,  trail running, and cycling. He enjoys hiking and camping with his wife Archana and two kids.
