I joined the group as an intern in July, 2021 and since January, 2022, I worked as a Project Associate. I graduated from Birla Institute of Technolgy and Science, Pilani (Hyderabad Campus) in Mechanical Engineering in 2021. I was working in batteries sciences for nearly a year, including for my bachelor thesis at Automotive Research Association of India for 6 months. With the SAI-MAT group, I worked on computational modelling of spinel-based photo(electro)catalysts. After getting to learn the ropes, I hope to carry on to computational modelling of battery materials, specially on multivalent batteries. I’m quite interested in materials science and so the work at the SAI-MATerials group was a good opportunity for me to explore the different fields open to materials scientists.
I am quite an avid gaming enthusiast and bibliophile. From Doom Eternal, GTA to Dan Brown, Freakonomics, A Brief History of Time… all thoroughly interest me!
I was involved with the following publication during my tenure with the group.
