I received M. Sc. Degree from the Indian Institute of Technology, Roorkee in 2003 and Ph.D. degree in Jan. 2008 from the Inter University Accelerator Centre, affiliated with  Jawaharlal Nehru University New Delhi, India. After completing Ph.D., I joined department of nanosciences at Neel Institute, Grenoble, France, where I was a postdoctoral fellow upto feb 2009 and later postdoc fellow at National Laboratory Intense Magnetic Fields, Toulouse, France and Alexander von Humboldt (postdoc) Fellow at Institute for Experimental and Applied Physics, University of Regensburg, Germany. Currently, I am working as a Ramanujan fellow in the School of Materials Science and Technology, IIT (BHU), Varanasi.
