Research Interests 
Sustainable Approaches Towards Carbon dioxide Sequestration, Methane Capture and Polymorphism

We are interested in elucidating the role of molecular interactions at microscopic level to develop molecular level tools for tailoring the functional and topological properties of biodegradable materials like Covalent Organic Frameworks for carbon dioxide sequestration, methane capture and biocompatible polymers for enhanced, selective nucleation of active pharmaceutical ingredients.
