I am currently a Ph.D. student in the "Computational Materials Design" junior group of Prof. Dr. Janine George. As a materials informatics researcher, I am enthusiastic about using automation and artificial intelligence techniques to solve challenges in the material sciences. My current focus is developing tools for high throughput atomistic simulations, feature engineering, and machine-learned models for predicting material properties. In my Ph.D., I am specifically focused on discovering new thermoelectric materials by developing automation tools to curate a database of bonding analysis data. I'm also utilizing machine learning to build machine-learned models to discover the relationship between material properties and chemical bonding, allowing me to find novel materials of interest. I believe in making my research as accessible and reproducible as possible; thus, I am also actively contributing to open-access codes.
Before transitioning into natural sciences research, I did my bachelor's in automobile engineering and worked as a product design engineer in India.
