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
- Research fellowship by DST, India to pursue Ph.D. in Theoretical Sciences, JNCASR from Aug 2014-Jul 2020
- Best Poster Award for research poster on Predicting the stability of a high-entropy alloy: First-Principles analysis, at International Workshop on High Entropy Materials (IWHEM-2017), held in University of Hyderabad, India
- Full waiver of registration fee for Gordon Research Conference on Physical Metallurgy, held in University of New England, Biddeford ME, United States (Jul 2015)
- Best Poster Award for research poster on Deformation Induced Polymorphs of Ti and hcp Metals, presented during Annual Faculty Meeting 2015, JNCASR
- Research fellowship from DST, India to pursue M.S. (Engineering) Theoretical Sciences, JNCASR from Aug 2011 - Oct 2013.
