I completed my B.Tech in Polymer Science & Chemical Technology from Delhi Technological University in 2014. In the same year, I secured All India Rank 1in GATE (XE) examination. Subsequently, I joined IISc, Bangalore to pursue Masters in Materials Engineering. I worked under the supervision of Prof. Praveen C. Ramamurthy on “Fabrication of Organic Solar Cells on Flexible Glasses”. After my master’s, I gained industrial experience of 11 months by working in Process Technology Group of Tata Steel, Jamshedpur. To continue my interest in Solar Cell Technology which was my focus in Master’s too, I am joining IITB-Monash Research Academy on the project “Micro-spectroscopic and Micro-structural investigation of Bulk-heterojunction Organic Solar Cells” under the guidance of Prof. Dinesh Kabra(IITB) and Prof. Christopher McNeil (Monash University). My other interest includes dancing, drawing and working with NGO’s.
