I completed my bachelor’s (B.Tech) in Chemical Engineering from Banasthali University, Rajasthan in 2012. I also gained both industrial and research experience during internships, as a part of the curriculum. After clearing All India Exam, GATE, in 2012 I got admission to pursue Master’s from Indian Institute of Technology (IIT)-Hyderabad. Here I worked on the project titled ‘Block Copolymer Derived Electrospun Nanofibers: Synthesis,Characterization and Application’ under the supervision of Dr. Chandra Shekhar Sharma. After securing 9.13 CGPA during my curriculum, I was selected as a Project Engineer at Non-Ferrous Materials Technology Development centre, Hyderabad. Here I worked on energy related projects (Fuel Cell and Solar Cell). Now to continue my passion of research I am continuing my PhD studies at IITB-Monash Research Academy on the project ‘Nanofiller Incorporated Co-continuous Binary Polymer Blends:
Rheological and Morphological Investigation’. Apart from research my interests also lies in music, dancing and reading novels.
