Teaching & Research Interests: 

My research work involves understanding the properties of materials at macro/micro/nanoscale by unravelling the nature of electronic, phononic and inter-atomic interactions at the atomic length scales using modeling and simulations.

My research areas include:

  • Mechanical Deformation of Materials
  • Flexibility of crystals
  • Crystal-to-amorphous transitions
  • Thermal transport at nano-scale
  • Thermodynamics of multi-component alloys
Awards(Selected): 
  • Research fellowship by DST, India to pursue Ph.D. in Theoretical Sciences, JNCASR from Aug 2014-Jul 2020
