Rutvij Pankaj Kulkarni

Intern (Undergraduate)

I am a final year undergraduate student at the Birla Institute of Technology and Science, Pilani (Hyderabad Campus), currently doing my bachelors thesis at Indian Institute of Science. My thesis topic is combining machine learning with density functional theory calculations in solid electrolyte systems. Although my bachelors degree is in mechanical engineering, I have a keen interest in materials for energy storage, and I hope to pursue a Masters degree in materials science in the future.

I usually spend my free time playing (or watching) tennis and football. During COVID-19, I also developed a huge liking for satirical talk shows such as the The Daily Show and Last Week Tonight with John Oliver.
