Education and Work Experience

At present I am a Visiting Scholar at Northwestern University, though work as an Associate Professor at the Physics Department of IITBombay.  I received my M.Sc. (in Physics) from Pune University and Ph.D. (2014) from National Chemical Laboratory (affiliated to Pune University). My current interests are oxide and sulfide based photovoltaic materials, plasmonic properties of nobel metal nanostructures, and magnetic nanoparticles for phantom or imaging applications. We are also exploring utility of graphene like materials for optoelectronics purposes.    

Research Projects

My present research activities in the group are

-          Development of 2D material inks and hence devices thereof (layer by layer assembled flexible prints)

-          Therapeutically activated  multifunctional ‘nanosized hydrogels’

-          Anisotropic Magnetic nanoparticle – Magnetic resonance enhancement (MRE)
