MSc in chemistry from Kurukshetra University, Kurukshetra
BSc in non-medical from Kurukshetra University, Kurukshetra
Ph.D. from INST-IISER Mohali
Group Member: April 2019 – February 2023.
Area of Research: I am working on the ab initio modeling of single-molecule magnets and organic molecular magnets. Various strategies are employed to fine-tune the zero-field splitting parameters to obtain promising candidates as single-molecule magnets. Employing ab initio and DFT techniques, my aim is to enhance and improve the magnetic properties in transition metal and lanthanide metal-based single-molecule magnets. I am also involved in the designing principles of high-spin organic diradicals based on the super-stable Blatter’s radical with the aim to obtain superior diradicals with significant magnetic exchange interactions.
