Collective behaviour, Robotics and Smart materials


Academic Profile




sgp.png I am currently a post-doc in Mahadevan’s lab at Harvard working on designing advanced functional materials and robotics inspired by collective social behaviour.

I completed my PhD in Physics at the International Centre for Theoretical Sciences, Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, Bengaluru. There I worked on problems related to elasticity, geometry and hydrodynamics, particularly around instabilities in thin elastic structures (filaments and sheets) and dynamics of solid particles in fluid flows.

Please see the Research section for a detailed description of my research.
