My interest in nanoscale phenomena and their potential to influence our everyday life brings me to this research group. My undergraduate years were spent at IIT Bombay where I worked on a MEMS based sensor for biological detection. My long term goals lie in creating engineered products for use in the lifesciences. When I am not in the lab, I am in the gym or at home listening to music.
Played around with nanoparticles and put them on different surfaces, and got a few publications.
