I have a Master’s degree in Organic Chemistry from Vidyasagar University, India and a Ph.D. degree in Polymer Science from the Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur (IIT Kharagpur) done under the supervision of Assoc. Prof. Dibakar Dhara. After my Ph. D., I joined Prof. Perez-Mercader group at Harvard University in October 2018 as a Postdoctoral Fellow. My current research involves synthesis of self-replicating information-carrying polymers to implement various chemical information features necessary in the construction of fully artificial protocells.
Research Interests: Amphiphilic Block Copolymers, Self-assembly Processes, Polymerization-Induced Self-Assembly, Polymersomes, Origins of Life.
