Short Biography

I was born and raised in India where I completed my Bachelor in Technology at the Indian Institute of Technology, Guwahati with a major in Chemical Science and a minor in Mathematics. I then pursued a master’s in Nanoscience at the University of Groningen in the Netherlands. During my master’s, I performed my minor project in the group of Professor Giuseppe Portale which focused on understanding the structural packing of quantum dot superlattices using small and wide-angle X-ray scattering. Following this, I then performed my master’s thesis in the group of Professor Bart van Wees and Professor Moniek Tromp which focused on trying to understand the effect of chirality-induced Spin Selectivity with electrochemistry. After my master’s, I will continue to stay in the group of Professor Bart van Wees where my Ph.D. will focus on the (topologically protected) magnon transport in 2D van der Wals material.

Passionate about both playing and watching chess in my free time. I also love cooking which I believe stems from my affinity for eating!
