"Poovanna was a valuable part of our team during his time with us. In that time, he coordinated simulation activities with international teams in CFD and thermal analysis. His work was consistently carried out in a timely and detail-oriented way. He excelled at coordinating a large number of projects simultaneously and ensured they met the needs of our team. Results from simulations were always prepared in a well though out, clear manner, and proved to be a valuable part of our development work. I wish Poovanna success in his career, and hope to have the chance to work with him again in the future!"
