I am currently a Research Fellow in the inter-disciplinary Living Systems Institute of University of Exeter.

I completed my PhD in Nanophotonics from Indian Institute of Technology Delhi, India where part of my PhD research for a year was carried out at Institut fuer Angwandte Physik, University of Muenster, Germany under DAAD sandwich model PhD research fellowship. Prior to joining as a Research Fellow here in University of Exeter, I was a Postdoctoral Research Scientist in Helmholtz Zentrum Berlin, Germany and subsequently a Max Planck Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Max Planck Institute for the Science of Light, Erlangen, Germany.

My research interests include both computational as well as experimental investigations pertaining to Nanophotonics, Opto-plasmonic biosensors, Silicon photonics, Enhanced light-matter interaction in ordered and disordered nanostructures, Linear and nonlinear nano/micro optical cavities, Novel single photon sources and photon statistics.
