My research interests and expertise lie in two categories namely, Experimental Condensed-matter Materials Physics and Experimental Biophysics. 

  • Design, synthesis, processing, and characterization of a range of nanoscale materials, in general,
  • In particular, low-dimensional carbons / nanocarbons, such as nanodiamond, nanotubes, graphene, nanocomposites, for a range of technological applications such as alternative energy sources (supercapacitors, batteries, photovoltaics etc.), 
  • Surface / Interfacial science, Nano-bio interface / interaction, Topology and Geometry Aspects in Functional Materials (e.g. Curved carbons, Schwarzites, Catenoids etc.). A range of state-of-the-art structural and property measurement techniques are employed to achieve these goals.
