Research:

My work focusses on the application of statistical mechanics, thermodynamics and molecular simulation to address systems of practical interest. My current interests lie in the modeling of energy storage and biophysical systems. (For e.g. Electrolyte designs for Lithium ion batteries/supercapacitors, folding and aggregation of proteins and peptides, nucleation of weak electrolytes in solution (kidney stones, metal-organic frameworks)). 
 

Hobbies: 

My hobbies include running and playing soccer.
Also, I am currently utilizing a (self-built) GPU based machine learning rig to participate in online AI competitions.
