I am a Ph.D. student in the Center for Computational NanoScience in WPI physics department. My advisor is Prof. L. Ramdas Ram-Mohan. My research revolves around theoretical condensed matter physics and computational nano-physics.
I am currently working on efficient designing of phononic crystals and acoustic metamaterials in collaboration with the US Air Force Research Lab.
I am also interested in topological insulating quantum heterostructures such as quantum wells and superlattices. Recently, we have found the highest ever hybridization bandgap in such systems which is a significant step in the room temperature realization of the quantum spin Hall insulator.
