Ellora Padhi obtained her Ph.D. from Department of Civil Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur, India in 2020. Her doctoral research topic was hydrodynamics of gravel beds including experimental studies on turbulent flow over the water-worked gravel-bed. Her areas of research interests include open-channel hydraulics, river meandering, turbulence and sediment transport. At present, she is working on flow over dunal bedforms. In natural stream flows, owing to the sediment transport, continuous deposition and erosion of sediments occurs. The dunal surface in natural streams is amongst most common examples, where turbulence is closely linked. The proposed research shows a blueprint of finding the signature of turbulence in most common flows. This study reveals hidden pearls of turbulence from the experimental frameworks.
