Researcher in Nanomaterials
Ph.D. Mechanical Engineering
University of California, Berkeley
I am a Research Scientist in Meta Reality Labs.
I was previously a Postdoc with Prof. Ana Arias and Prof. Kris Pister in EECS at University of California Berkeley. I earned a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering and an MS in Electrical Engineering from University of California Berkeley. I was advised by Prof. Albert Pisano and Prof. Thomas Russell.
My research interests include printed electronics, nanomaterial self-assembly, and organic-inorganic hybrid materials. I have developed methods to self-assemble nanoparticles of varied materials, shapes and sizes at the interfaces between two liquids. I am currently working on printed, miniaturized lithium-ion batteries for integrated energy storage.
Prior to Berkeley, I completed B.E. in Manufacturing Processes and Automation Engineering from NSIT, University of Delhi, India. I have also spent time in engineering research at Intel, Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited, and Yamaha Motors.
