I am from India and have spent most of my life in Pune, a lovely city in Western Maharashtra, India. I spent some time working in Mumbai after my undergraduate education, which were two of the most fun-filled and enriching years of my life. After that, I came to TAMU to work my way towards a doctoral degree.
I am currently investigating structural transformations in Shape Memory Alloys. We use DFT and various optimization algorithms to determine the energy barriers and associated minimum energy pathways for structural phase transformations in these alloys. Additionally, I also work on developing thermodynamic models using the CALPHAD method.
