I am a postdoctoral fellow in Department of Physics at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign with Prof Aleksei Aksimentiev. I am a coputational physicist by training and obtained my PhD from Physics Department of IISc Bangalore in 2017. My research interest involves the multiscale modelling of exotic nano-bio materials using novel computer simulation techniques. I implement the basic concept of statastical mechanics and computational chemistry to understand the phenomenon of technological interest at nanoscale. Overall goal of my research is to broaden the usage of nanomaterials in modern science and technology.

Please refer to my curriculum vitae for detail information about my education, skills and research interest.
