Educational Qualifications 
B.Sc. Chemistry Hons.
Ramjas College, University of Delhi
M.Sc. Chemistry
Indian Institute of Technology, Guwahati
Teaching & Research Interests: 

Our broad area of research is solid state chemistry and X-ray crystallography, Currently, our interest is the development of all organic ferroelectric materials which shows superior ferroelectric properties at above room temperature and their application in transistors and FeRAMs. we are also studying the polymorphic behaviour in these systems using X-ray crystallography as a basic tool.
