I am interested in observing and modelling new phenomena in the field of fluid mechanics, transport processes, interfacial science, thin film morphology, complex fluids, adhesion-debonding, soft interfaces, microfluidics, and electrochemistry. I use linear stability analysis (LSA), direct nonlinear simulations (NS), and continuum scale modelling to analyse and understand the physics of the scientifically relevant unanswered research problems of these areas.  

Pursued Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in Chemical Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur. I have worked as a Post-Doctoral Fellow (PDF) at Centre for Nanotechnology, Indian Institute of Technology Guwahati.

Currently, working as a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Electrochemical Science and Engineering Group, Mechanical Engineering Department of Imperial College London. Present research work at Imperial is focused on the simulations and modelling of Li-ion batteries focusing on the cathode degradation mechanism.
