I am a PhD student working with Prof. Ebbe Nordlander, department of chemical physics, Lund university. I have done my master degree in chemistry in 2010 from Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur (IITK). I have been selected for Erasmus Mundus scholarship for the period 2010-2013 to pursue doctorate study.

I want to be specialist in bioinorganic chemistry. Currently, I am carrying out my research in the same field. International Year of Chemistry, 2011 is particularly interested for me because this will enable me to be a part of large scientific community across the globe working in various fields of chemistry that will facilitate me to interact with them and to grab and exchange their ideas.
