Hometown: Mumbai, India
Education: 2011 B.Tech in Polymers and Surface Coating Technology Institute of Chemical Technology Mumbai, India
Work Experience: 05/2010-07/2010 Student Intern R&D AkzoNobel Coatings, Bangalore, India Optimization and cost engineering of Surface Tolerant Epoxy coatings formulation for the offshore structures
My primary project involves understanding adsorption of polyelectrolytes at aqueous-solid interfaces and thereby in-situ modification of the surface texture and lubrication. My other interests are surface restructuring of polymer thin films, sum-frequency generation spectroscopy and non-linear optics, Chemical-physical interactions at fluid interfaces, block co-polymer self-assemblies.
