I have obtained my PhD (2011-2015) working under the guidance of Prof. Subi J. George and Prof. S. Balasubramanian  with the thesis entitled “Investigations into the molecular origins of mechanisms in supramolecular polymerization”.  
I have started working at Prof. E. W. Meijer’s group from July 2015. The project initially involves understanding the dynamics of supramolecular polymers on surfaces using BTAs as model systems. Using this knowledge, functional chiral molecules/polymers with potential application in organic electronics will be studied on surfaces.
