I am a fifth year PhD candidate in Chemical Engineering at the University at Buffalo (UB). I received my undergraduate degree in Materials Science and Engineering from IIT Kanpur, India. I work in the group of Prof. Johannes Hachmann and my current project concerns the modeling of organic polymers for optical applications using quantum chemistry and data modeling.
I am the president of the Computational Sciences Club (CSC) at UB. Through this club, we maximize the interaction among graduate students working in computational science fields. It provides an opportunity to learn new computational tools, enhance existing computational skills, share research ideas, and promote collaboration.
