I am a Physics enthusiast seeking opportunities to learn more. Currently, I am pursuing my doctoral studies at the Department of Physics in Lund University, Sweden. Theoretical Condensed Matter Physics is occupying most of my attention these days apart from traveling and exploring new places.

Research Interests

My doctoral research focuses on the study of materials with strong electronic correlations using Dynamical Mean Field Theory (DMFT) and its extensions. While the focus of my master's thesis project was to use the Time Dependent Non-Equilibrium Green's Function and Landau Lifshitz Gilbert (TDNEGF + LLG) formulations to study the dynamics of antiferromagnetic textures. Before this, I had worked on graphene to find out universal features in its energy spectrum in the presence of localized point defects. Apart from these, I was also involved in a citizen science project in Astronomy called RAD@home India to discover, classify and study exotic radio sources as well as to nurture young e-astronomers to do this job.

Extracurricular interests

Apart from the above what I put my efforts in is NOT doing research or studying. Yes !! You just need to disconnect from the hustle and bustle sometimes to think clearly. That is where travel and music helps me.
