I am a Ph.D. student at the department of Materials Engineering, Indian Institute of Science. My research interest is centered in the field of computational materials science for discovery of two dimensional (2D) materials and other novel functional materials with application to energy storage and conversion, and gas sensor.

I completed my Bachelor’s degree in Materials Science and Engineering and Master’s degree in Metallurgical Engineering at Jimma University, Ethiopia. I did my Master’s thesis under the supervision of Dr. Tekalign Terfa and Dr. Mulualem Abebe.

Alongside my professional activities, I love spending time with friends, reading fiction books and watching movies.

I have been involved with the following publication during my tenure with the group so far.
