Prior to joining WPI in 2015 to pursue my Ph.D, I obtained my master’s degree in Physics with gold medal from University of Hyderabad, India. My master’s thesis added insights to the phase space description of quantum mechanics. I was fortunate enough to receive INSPIRE scholarship from Govt. of India, which sponsored my undergraduate and graduate education in India. At WPI, I work at the Center for Computational NanoScience in the field of theoretical condensed matter physics. The interplay of physics, mathematics and computation provides a robust way to investigate rich phenomena in meso and nanoscale systems within a finite domain. We apply the finite element analysis to study quantum scattering phenomena in semiconductors and topological insulators. My other research interests includes electrodynamics simulations in photonic crystals and waveguides, parallel computation in physics, and quantum transport. I frequently assist several undergraduates with their MQP research and as a teaching assistant, I enjoy discussing Physics with new students each term.
