Reshma holds a MEng degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Southampton (2014). In June 2019, she completed her PhD from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where she worked with Professor Yang Shao-Horn on understanding the fundamental processes that occur at oxide-water interfaces under electrochemical conditions that are relevant for water splitting. Since January 2020, she is a Research Associate in Professor James Durrant's group and is working on spectroelectrochemical studies of (photo)electrochemical interfaces.
