About me

        I am a research experimentalist in nanophotonics with a PhD degree in Physics from Indian Institute of Science(IISc), Bengaluru, India. My research area focuses on the experimental and theoretical aspects of engineering light matter interactions in plasmonic and dielectric nanostructured systems. Core research topics include optical chirality, optical metamaterials, metasurfaces, Mie resonators, SERS, microspectroscopy, hyperspectral imaging, nanofabrication and finite element modeling. I am a driven professional with an open and a reflective mind who is very passionate about scientific research and not afraid to look for challenges outside my comfort zone.


My current responsibility focuses around development of optical set and prototyping light field microscopy for volumetric 3D imaging.

Fields of expertise

My technical expertise lies in building optical characterisation sets ups; large area micro-nanofabrication and characterisation techniques; semi-analytical and finite element modeling. Check out my linkedIn or ORCID profile for details.
