I hold a B.Tech degree in Chemical Engineering from National Institute of Technology, Trichy, India. I joined the CoMo group as a research student in October 2008 after having completed my MPhil in Advanced Chemical Engineering from the University of Cambridge. My current work involves modelling various chemical systems using quantum chemistry calculations. I am a member of New Hall (Murray Edwards) college, and am being funded by Cambridge Commonwealth Trust and New Hall BP Centenary Bursary.
