Expertise

Mechanical Engineering

My research work focuses on the development of atomistic models in classical mechanics based molecular dynamics (MD) and quantum mechanics based density functional theory (DFT) environment for the characterization of graphene, graphane, graphene oxide nanomaterials and their polymer nanocomposites. I extensively work on tailoring the mechanical, fracture and thermal properties of 2D nanomaterials by incorporating geometrical defects and selective chemical functional groups in their quantum domai
