I am currently working as a Research fellow at TMOS-the ARC Centre of Excellence for Transformative Meta-Optical Systems as part of RMIT node. In my current role, I am responsible for optimising the material deposition and all fabrication processes for metamaterial-based devices.

With my 7 years of experience (including Ph.D.) in semiconductor systems, I have gained a strong interest and experience in designing and fabricating electronic and photonic devices with van der Waals and phase change materials. I have a PhD degree in microelectronics from Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore. I specialise in designing optoelectronic devices and my work on this field lead me to receive ‘THE SESHAGIRI KAIKINI MEDAL’ for the year 2020-2021 from the most prestigious institute in India – Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore.


I would like to spend my spare time either with my family or practicing the Indian classical dance form.”
