I started as a postdoctoral researcher at the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research (MPI-P) Mainz, in September 2020. In the theory group at MPI-P, my research is focused on modeling organic/inorganic hybrid perovskite nanocrystals relevant in electroluminescence applications.
I received my Ph.D. from the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities in Aug. 2020 working in the group of Prof. Christopher J. Cramer. During my graduate studies, I have focused mainly on modeling catalytic processes encompassing both homogeneous and heterogeneous systems. Prior to starting graduate school, I worked with Prof. Debashree Ghosh at the CSIR-National Chemical Laboratory, India, as an intern and explored pathways for UV-induced photo-degradation of eumelanin. I obtained my Master of Science (M.Sc. Chemistry) and Bachelor of Science (B.Sc. Chemistry Honors) degrees from the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Bombay, and Ramakrishna Mission Residential College Narendrapur, Kolkata, India, respectively.
