Earlier, I co-founded a nanotechnology company in India Log 9 Materials , (which focuses on manufacturing and developing commercial applications around Graphene) and a multidisciplinary Design Studio at IIT Roorkee. I hold a Integrated Master's degree in physics (with specialization in material science) from the Indian Institute of Technology, Roorkee. My portfolio includes research at various institutions around the globe including the Max Planck Institute for Informatics, Germany and Bauhaus University Weimar, Germany. You can find more about my work and research projects below.
