I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Physics, at the Indian Institute of Technology Patna working in the area of condensed matter physics. The research activity in my group focuses on Physics motivated exploration of Sustainable Functional Materials and Technologies. I am also collaborating with science and engineering department faculty members in our Institute towards developing applications in the domains of Energy (with Dr. R. Raj, Mechanical Engineering), Environment (Dr. S. K. Samanta, Chemical and Biochemical Engineering), Cell manipulation using Micro-Robotics (Dr. Atul Thakur, Mechanical Engineering) and Sensing (Dr. T. Rajagopala Rao, Chemistry). Nationally, there is extensive collaboration with Prof. C. V. Tomy (IIT Bombay and SNU), Dr Yogesh Singh (IISER Mohali), Dr. Ashutosh Kumar Mishra (IIT Bombay)  and Dr. Sivaprahsam (ARCI). International collaborations include Dr. K. Hirata and Dr. S. Ooi (NIMS, Japan). This webpage contains an overview of my research and teaching activities. [CV]
