I joined the University in January 2019 and I teach Physics, Mathematics and Programming in the School of Arts and Sciences.

Prior to this, I was teaching at the Post Graduate Department of Physics in Vijaya College, Bangalore University. 

I finished my PhD from the School of Physical Sciences, Jawaharlal Nehru University in 2013. I worked as a DS Kothari Postdoctoral fellow at the Department of Mathematics, Indian Institute of Science (20142017).

I have extensively worked with automata models to understand simple neuronal dynamics in networks of neurons. In my recent work, I (along with my co-authors) review and outline some of the key results and findings in the field of generalised synchronisation, a fundamental phenomenon observed in nonlinear dynamics. 

I love to travel and indulge in local cuisines and adventure activities. I practice Buddhism and enjoy reading spiritual books.
