A materials chemist by training, I teach chemistry and work towards enhancing the properties of nanomaterials.

I’m currently a PhD candidate in solid state chemistry, working with Dr Mathew Maye at Syracuse University. My graduate research deals with oxidation in transition metal nanoparticles, where I studied the oxidation rates and subsequent morphological evolution in nanomaterials to create highly corrosion resistant “nanoscale stainless Steel”. I also teach Honors Chemistry labs with emphasis on research grade topics.

I obtained my Bachelors of Technology degree from the Institute of Chemical Technology in Mumbai.
