I am currently a postdoc at MIT in Tal Cohen's Nonlinear Solid Mechanics group. I have a Ph.D. in Solid Mechanics from Brown University. I was born and brought up in India. A certified mechanical engineer from Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur (IIT Kanpur), I am a cricket fan and like to keep myself updated on the bleeding edge of technology. When not working on mechanics problems, I can be found solving mathematical puzzles. Overview of my research, including the publications, are available on this site.
