I am a postdoctoral research associate at the Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment of the Princeton University. I received my B.S. degree in chemical engineering from the Jadavpur University in 2012 and my PhD degree in mechanical engineering from the University of Florida in 2018 . During my doctoral research I studied cells in jammed microgels at Prof. Tommy Angelini's lab. I'm currently working with Prof. Sujit Datta on understanding and controlling the behavior of bacterial colonies in porous media.
