I was born in the state of Assam, in India. I did my bachelor (B.Sc.) in Chemistry from Mangaldoi College under Gauhati University, Assam in 2012. I have received my M.Sc degree in Chemistry with specialization in Physical Chemistry from Gauhati University, Assam in the year of 2014. After that I moved to Kolkata, India to pursue my Ph.D. In August 2021, I received my Ph.D degree from S N Bose National Centre for Basic Sciences (under Jadavpur University). I joined Louisiana State University as a post doc in January, 2022 and then joined the Van Lehn Group in UW-Madison as a post doc on August 2022. I have research experience in field of the molecular arrangements and motions in complex liquids and multi-component mixtures via molecular dynamics simulations.


My research interest is mainly based on molecular dynamics simulations applied to various complex chemical systems. Particularly, I am interested in the field of research of molecular-scale simulations of lignin-solvent interactions in complex solvent systems. Moreover, I have research interest towards the development of environmental pollution control sensors.
