I am an Assistant Professor selected under University Grant Commission's (UGC) Faculty Recharge Programme (FRP). I have been hosted at the Centre since June 2013.

Prior to joining the Centre I finished three years of post-doctoral work at University of Alberta, Canada (2010-12) and at University of Nebraska - Lincoln, USA (2012-13). I have a Ph.D. in Physics from University of Pune, India (2010).

I have my special interests in computational materials science and photography!

My research work is broadly categorized in the field of Computational Material Science. In particular my interests are in:
  • Complex magnetic interactions in random alloys
  • Photocatalytic water splitting
  • Solid state nudge elastic band
  • Electronic structure calculations of novel materials
  • Carbon allotropes, especially graphene and graphAne

I will update this section soon. In the mean time please follow me on Google+

Everything else
When I am not working I keep myself busy in bird-watching, writing shell scripts, trekking and above all photographing!
Sometime I also post a blog or two on my travel.

आणि हो, कधी-मधी मराठीतुन चार ओळी खरडत असतो!
