I am an Assistant Professor of Chemistry & Materials Science at the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT).

In a career spanning 10+ years, I have researched next-generation solution-processed semiconductor electronics based on colloidal nanocrystals, metal-oxides, and metal-halide perovskite semiconductors. This body of research has so far resulted in 50 research articles published in high-impact journals including Joule, Advanced Materials, ACS Energy Letters, Science and the Nature family, besides multiple conference and invited talks. During my postdoctoral tenure at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), I have advanced perovskite optoelectronics for aerospace applications.

My research has drawn attention to the interfacial and microstructural complexity in printed electronics, and the need to understand it for enabling the lab-to-fab transition.
