Email

I am an experimental physicist currently working as a postdoctoral researcher at Brandeis MRSEC, specializing in interdisciplinary research that merges physics, engineering, DNA nanotechnology, and materials science to pioneer the next generation of biomaterials. I got my PhD from JNCASR, India, where I explored the interplay of nature, activity, chirality, and deformability in glassy slowing down. I developed a novel strategy to 3-D print tunable designer active granular matter. Looking ahead, I am driven to explore non-equilibrium self-assembly, inspired by the fascinating mechanisms observed in biology. My approach involves leveraging inanimate objects as tools, designed to replicate the functionalities inherent to living systems.
