I have recentely graduated (July 2022) under the Singapore (NUS) – MIT Alliance for Research and Technology (SMART). I was co-avised by Prof. Stephen Pennycook (NUS) and Prof. Silvija Gradecak (MIT). I am now a Postdctoral research fellow in the group of Prof. Gerbrand Ceder at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, CA, USA and at the University of California at Berkeley, CA, USA

My broad area of interest is the synergistic investigation of materials using atomically resolved microscopy and computational materials science. In 2018, I completed my undergraduate studies in Materials at the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore (IISc, Bangalore). During my bachelors, I worked as a research intern at the Japan Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (2016) in the determination of thermal vibration from atomically resolved microscopy imaging. For my final year bachelors project at IISc, I worked on three-dimensional structure reconstruction from a single projection atomic resolved microscopy image. I love coding in multiple coding languages, such as Python, MATLAB, JAVA, and CUDA C. In my free time, I enjoy reading books and playing Squash.
