Hi! I’m originally from India but I spent 12 years in US as a student and researcher at Pittsburgh, Los Alamos, Harvard, and Brown before joining OIST as faculty in 2012. I’m interested in studying almost anything I cannot understand so long as the effect can be experienced with the unaided senses. Art, hiking, and food are my other passions and I’m always trying combine them with my science.

A smiling, slender young man with a beard.

Hi everyone! I am a PhD student at OIST working with Professor Yabing Qi in the Energy Materials and Surface Science Unit. I come from the U.S., where I graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison with a major in Chemistry and Japanese language. I am interested in alternative energy in general, with my research focusing on solar energy materials. I hope to share my experience of what student life is like at OIST! In my free time I like to train capoeira and drink craft beer. I look forward to meeting everyone!
