Harika Gurram

Research Engineering/Scientist Associate II

Web & Mobile Applications Group


Harika joined TACC in June 2017, from the Florida Institute of Technology where she worked on developing graphical interfaces using MATLab and analyzing hurricane data in DesignSafe. During her graduation she also worked on analyzing the effect of wake structure on drag coefficient for thin flexible wire. Prior to that, she worked as Research Assistant at Defense Research and Development Laboratory, India, her responsibilities were to analyze the aerodynamic characteristics of various generic and cruciform missile configurations. In her spare time, she enjoys abstract painting and reading.
