I joined RPI in Fall 2016 to pursue my doctoral studies in the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering. I am co-advised by Prof. Robert J. Linhardt and Prof. Joel Plawsky. My research is centered on synthesis and characterization of nano fibers and their application. I received my bachelors degree in spring of 2016 from National Institute of Technology, Durgapur where I worked on modelling and simulations of dynamic systems. I have also worked in the fields of lithium ion batteries and membrane chromatography, in particular development of chiral membranes for enantiomer separation. Outside of lab, I enjoy travelling, reading and trying out new food recipes.
