About me

I’m a PhD candidate in Prof. Venkatasubramanian Viswanathan’s group in the department of Mechanical Engineering at University of Michigan (we recently moved from Carnegie Mellon University). My research has broadly centered around first-principles modeling of electrocatalytic systems and using machine learning to guide computational experiment.

I’m also a developer of Autocat, an open-source python software that provides tools to support electrocatalytic structure generation for first principles simulation. Additionally, it provides tools to support closed-loop computational searches for electrocatalyst discovery.

About this site

This website is powered by the academicpages template and hosted on GitHub Pages. GitHub Pages is a free service in which websites are built and hosted from code and data stored in a GitHub repository, automatically updating when a new commit is made to the respository. This template was forked from the Minimal Mistakes Jekyll Theme created by Michael Rose, and then extended to support the kinds of content that academics have. You can fork this repository right now, modify the configuration and markdown files, add your own PDFs and other content, and have your own site for free, with no ads!
