I am currently pursuing my Ph.D. in solar PV at UNSW Sydney. Earlier, I completed my Masters of Science (M.S.) at State University of New York, USA in 2017. With multiple international publications, I was invited to present my research at the University of Oxford and KU Leuven. In addition to intensive research expertise, I am also a science communicator. In 2019, I won the prestigious 3-minute thesis competition at UNSW Engineering.
