I obtained my Ph.D. from the Department of Organic Chemistry, Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, under the supervision of Prof. Uday Maitra in 2012. The focus of my thesis was on the synthesis and aggregation properties of bile acid derived oligomers. Subsequently, I worked as a postdoctoral fellow in the group of Prof. Rainer Haag, Freie Universitaet, Berlin, until the end of 2015 and carried out research on engineering self-assembled nanostructures using dendritic amphiphiles. During this period, I also visited the group of Prof. Meijer as a guest researcher for seven months. Since January 2016, I joined the group as a postdoc. My current research deals with understanding multicomponent supramolecular polymers and their dynamics in aqueous media.
