Research summary

Read more >


I grew up in Delhi, India's historic capital city and partly because of that, I have a lifelong affection for history and all things ancient. I got my undergraduate degree in India, graduate degrees in the US and started as a lecturer at Brisol in January 2017. My research interests are primarily in the field of nanoscale opto-electro-mechanical devices for information processing and sensing applications. I am particularly interested in nanoscale device fabrication and aim to produce state of the art opto-electronic devices at the Bristol nano-fabrication facility.
