Graduate Assistant University of Florida, Gainesville, FL 8/12–8/16
Prior to my current appointment, I was a a Postdoctoral Researcher at University of Pennsylvania, in the group of Prof. David Srolovitz, where I investigated the fast transport at the metal-ceramic interfaces using ab initio DFT and ReaxFF based atomistic modeling.
I received my PhD in Materials Science and Engineering from University of Florida in 2016 under the supervision of Prof. Susan B. Sinnott, where I worked on the development of charge optimized many-body (COMB3) interatomic potentials for Ni, Ni-Al and Ni-Al-O (available on the NIST repository) for classical molecular dynamics (MD) simulations, and ab initio characterization of dopant behavior in Ni-base superalloys using density functional theory (DFT). Earlier, I received my Bachelor of Technology (B. Tech.) in Metallurgical and Materials Engineering from National Institute of Technology Trichy, India in 2012.
