Kharthik Chakravarthy – MTST
I’m from Malaysia – specifically from a small island called Penang – and I spent the last four years in Imperial College London studying for a Masters in Mechanical Engineering. My work there had a strong emphasis on the application of fluid and thermodynamic principles in a range of areas, including jet propulsion and transmission design. In Oxford I’ll be working for a DPhil in the Department of Engineering Science where I’ll be developing laser diagnostic techniques to be used in thermofluid applications. I love playing sports and exercising during my free time. I played squash competitively during my undergraduate studies and I definitely intend to continue that here. I’ve also had a go at directing and writing scripts for the stage, and I enjoy acting and singing.
