I obtained a joint Ph.D. in Chemistry and Materials Science from Princeton University and I currently work as a Post-Doctoral Research Associate in the Bernasek Group in the Department of Chemistry at Princeton University. My research interests lie at the interface of surface science, plasmonics, electrodynamics and materials science.
Apart from my primary thesis research in Chemical Physics, I also receive a Science Technology and Environmental Policy (STEP) fellowship from Princeton Environmental Institute (PEI). My research work in environmental policy involves design of a decision making framework for the responsible regulation of engineered nanomaterials (ENMs) in the environment.
When not busy with research work, I am involved in organizing and fund-raising for the annual Princeton Research Symposium in my capacity as treasurer. I am also one of the Chapter Coordinators and President of the Princeton/ Central New Jersey chapter of the Association for India’s Development (AID-CNJ). AID is non-profit, voluntary organization that supports non-profit organizations in India with the aim of promoting sustainable, equitable and just development. AID supports and initiates efforts in various interconnected spheres such as education, livelihoods, natural resources including land, water and energy, agriculture, health, women's empowerment and social justice.
