With more than 15 years of experience in academic research, teaching, and mentoring Masters' and Ph.D. students I can provide insights into new emerging career options in research, academia, and industry. I have done a PhD from JNCASR, India on computational chemistry and materials and have postdoctoral research experience from the University of North Texas. As an independent research PI, I have studied structure and electronic properties of low-dimensional materials for energy storage and catalysis and optical properties of organic molecules for Singlet Fission. I currently serve in the Editorial Advisory Board of the Journal of Physical Chemistry. I have been awarded the BM Birla Prize in Chemistry in 2017 and CRSI Broze Medal in 2022.
