About


I started off as an experimental researcher working on low-temperature deformation behaviour of materials and later got trained in the range of theoretical as well as simulation tools applicable to Materials Science and Engineering. We employ a hybrid experimental-simulation methodology to develop the understanding of structure-property correlation in materials with an aim to develop design rules for the development of newer materials for a sustainable future.

In addition to the above, I am interested in Archaeometallurgy as well. We employ a range of characterisation tools to study the archaeometallurgical objects in our group to deduce the structure-property-processing relations for these objects.

Academic Qualifications


  • Postdoctoral research, Warwick Centre for Predictive Modelling, University of Warwick, UK, 2018-19. 
  • PhD, University of Sheffield, UK, 2015-18 
  • M.Sc. (Materials Science and Engineering), University of Sheffield, UK, 2014
  • B. E. (Metallurgy and Materials Engineering), IIEST-Shibpur, 2011

Research Statement


A combined experimental-theoretical-simulation scheme is employed to develop a multiscale understanding of the structure-property correlation in materials. We employ a range of simulation schemes such as Density Functional Theory, Molecular Dynamics, Tight-Binding and mesoscale schemes in conjugation with machine learning algorithms.

The ongoing research is broadly classified into the following domains:

  • High-Entropy Materials
  • Equilibrium and Non-Equilibrium Thermodynamics
  • Machine learning in Materials Science
  • Design of Sustainable Materials
  • Integrated Computational Materials Engineering (ICME) 
  • Archaeometallurgy
