Biographical Sketch: 
I have been involved in the PHENIX experiment at BNL since 2009 and later in the sPHENIX experiment. My research covers many aspects of experimental heavy-ion physics such as detector R&D, construction, and its operation. Before coming to Yale, I worked with the experimental Nuclear Physics Group at Stony Brook University as a Research Scientist and Research Assistant Professor for the construction and R&D of the Time Projection Chamber (TPC) installed at sPHENIX and GEM based tracker to be installed at the MOLLER experiment at Jefferson Lab.
Research : 
My current research interest is in Gaseous detectors and Photon detectors. I am involved in several R&D projects with a focus on detectors for the Electron Ion Collider (EIC) soon to be under construction at Brookhaven National Laboratory.
Ph.D. 2015, Banaras Hindu University
