    I joined this group in Fall-2004 and have been working on porous chalcogenide project. Before that I worked under Prof. Parimal Kumar Bharadwaj in IIT Kanpur for my M.S. project on supramolecular synthetic approach to make NLO active metal-organic frameworks.

    My current research is focused on synthesis of novel porous semiconducting chalcogenide based materials; their characterization by pair distribution function(PDF) analysis, small angle X-ray scattering (SAXS) technique, TEM, gas adsorption, XPS, NMR, Raman and IR. I am also investigating their catalytic activities, gas storage and separation capabilities and their efficiency towards heavy metal and organic pollutant removal from water.
