I work in the area of Soft Condensed Matter, i.e., Materials that show interesting physical behavior at energy scales comparable to room temperature thermal energy. These include Polymers, Colloidal Suspensions, Emulsions, Gels, Complex fluids with non-Newtonian rheology etc.

Students in my research group are trained to use both computational as well as experimental methods for their research. 


Prior to joining IIT Madras I was a faculty member at National Institute of Technology Karnataka, Surathkal.
