About Me:

I (born June 1986) obtained B.Sc. (2006), M.Sc. (2008), and M. Phil. (2009) degree from University of Rajasthan, Jaipur and later moved to National Chemical Laboratory (NCL), Pune. I did Ph.D. (2010 - 2014) in Chemistry at Indian Institute of Science Education and Research (IISER), Pune and further pursued Post-doctoral Research at Jawaharlal Nehru Centre for Advanced Scientific Research (JNCASR), Bangalore. My research interest is to investigate proton conducting materials, electrolytes and polymer membranes for energy applications.
