I am working as a Post-doctoral fellow at the Indian Institute of Science Education and Research (IISER), Bhopal, India. I have done my B.Sc. in Maths and Physics from the University of Lucknow, M.Sc. in Physics from Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Kanpur, and Ph.D. from Indian Institute of Science (IISc) Bangalore. My main focus during my Ph.D. was the computational study of the structural, elastic, vibrational, high-pressure, and high-temperature lattice dynamics in Pyrochlores and Perovskites.
My primary interest at IISER Bhopal is on the study of photo-induced phenomena in various hetrostructures. The photo-induced phenomena are quite interesting to study due to their vast applications in fields such as photo-voltaics, photo-catalysis, water splitting catalysis, and optoelectronic devices. It is vital to understand the mechanisms of the light capture and conversion to chemical, structural, or electrical responses in materials, the nature and dynamical role of competing processes in the excited states. My other interests involve the study of the ground state electronic properties, including the structural, elastic, thermal, and vibrational properties. I am also interested in exploring the effects of high-pressure and high-temperature on the structural dynamics, quantum magnetism, and various interactions to phonons, i.e. phonon-phonon, spin-phonon, crystal field-phonon, and electron-phonon.
