I completed my Ph.D. at Duke University, Durham NC, USA in the field of Computational Materials Physics in collaboration with Honda Research Inc., USA, investigating phase diagrams of transition metal catalyst nanoparticles for the growth of high purity single walled carbon nanotubes. Following this, I did my postdoctoral research in theoretical biophysics and obtained the Dorothea Schlözer Research Fellowship at the Georg-August-University at Göttingen, Germany, where I applied multi-scale simulation methods to investigate pore formation in lipid membranes to model the action of membrane-active peptides for drug delivery.
My current interests include data-driven models to understand underlying processes, and solutions to make them efficient, green and sustainable.
