About Me

I am a Postdoctoral Fellow in Materials Sciences Division at Lawrence Berkeley National Lab. I work with Prof. Thomas Russell (LBL and UMass Amherst) and Brett Helms (Molecular Foundry, LBNL). I completed my Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering at University of California, Berkeley in May 2017. I was advised by Prof. Albert Pisano and Prof. Tarek Zohdi.

My research interests include Nanomaterials Self-assembly, Polymers, Thin Films and Nanocomposites. I have developed solid state dielectric materials with high dielectric permittivity and low dielectric loss properties. I am currently working on generating structured liquids employing nanoparticle-polymer self-assemblies at the liquid interfaces.

I completed B.E. in Manufacturing Processes and Automation Engineering in 2010 from Netaji Subhas Institute of Technology, University of Delhi, India. During undergraduate study, I worked on material handling systems and an autonomous driving system. I have also worked at Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL), India in the HVAC and Fire Protection division from 2010 to 2011.
