I am an Institute of Eminence (IoE) postdoctoral fellow at the Department of Materials Engineering, Indian Institute of Science, Bengaluru. The goal of my postdoctoral research is to study amorphous materials using computational material science. My general research interests include the prediction of the behavior of various materials using the combination of density functional theory, molecular dynamics and machine learning techniques.

I received my Ph.D. and M.Tech. degrees from the Department of Mechanical Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology, Indore, while I received my B.E. degree in Mechanical Engineering from Ujjain Engineering College, Ujjain, Madhya Pradesh in 2014. During my Ph.D., I received the Shastri Indo-Canadian doctoral fellowship award to extend my research work at Carleton University, Canada in the nanomechanics group. During my Masters, I received the Institute Medal for securing the first rank in Indian Institute of Technology Indore among all post-graduate students.

Apart from research, I enjoy watching movies and playing cricket. Do check out my personal website here.
