I'm currently a Postdoctoral Research Associate (2016 - Present) at Princeton University in the Sustainable Concrete and Carbon Storage Group under the supervision of Prof. Claire White. I'm studying alkali-activated materials by synchrotron-based techniques with an overall aim to improve their durability and gain a better understanding of their local, atomic structure.  Additionally, I'm working on improving the yield of the shale hydraulic fracturing process. 

I completed my PhD in Nanoscience at Aarhus UniversityDenmark (2012 - 2015) under the supervision of Prof. Jørgen Skibsted. I studied calcined clay minerals at the Instrument Center for Solid-State NMR Spectroscopy which is affiliated with the Department of Chemistry and Interdisciplinary Nanoscience Center

I finished my Masters of Science degree from Iowa State University, US (2010 - 2012) under the supervision of Prof. Kejin Wang. Prior to that I got a Bachelors of Civil Engineering degree from Thapar University, India (2007 - 2010) and a Diploma (Honors) in Civil Engineering from Chandigarh College of Engineering and Technology, India (2004 - 2007). 

I was born and raised in the city of Chandigarh in Northern India where I received my early schooling.
