Graduate Student
Department of Chemistry

 I hail from the city of Kolkata, India. I did my BSc (Honours) in Chemistry from St. Xavier’s College, Kolkata in 2019 and completed my MSc in Chemistry from the Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur in 2021. During my Bachelor’s, I worked with Prof. Pinaki Chaudhury (University of Calcutta) and Dr Rahul Sharma (St. Xavier’s College) on the development of stochastic optimisation techniques to locate saddle points and to trace out isomerisation pathways in ionic clusters. For my Master’s project, I worked with Prof. Nisanth N Nair on the application of the Multiple Time Step algorithm to speed up electrostatic calculations in QM/MM simulations. In the Voth group, I will be working on the development of coarse-grained models.
