I was born and completed all my prior education in India. I have done my B.Tech (2017) and M.Tech (2018) in a joint dual-degree program in the discipline of Materials Science and Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur. I joined TU Eindhoven as a Ph.D. in August 2018.

My project focuses on the study of excitation dynamics with the use and development of multi-scale simulation techniques for materials posed as probable candidates for next generation solar cells. The projects I have worked on in the past include Study of the effect of octahedral ordering on the thermoelectric properties of double perovskites using DFT (Master’s thesis) and Impedance characterization of high entropy oxides for solid-sate batteries (B.Tech project).
