I am a Research Scientist at Indiana University's Department of Intelligent Systems Engineering, where I specialize in scientific visualization and molecular dynamics. My research background is in computational chemistry, particularly in simulating various nanostructures like polymers, graphene, fullerenes, and carbon nanotubes. In addition to developing software for visualizing these structures as they evolve over time, I also teach courses on data science on-ramp, with a focus on the principles of machine learning and the implementation of machine learning algorithms using various programming languages.
I earned my PhD in Physical Chemistry from the Laboratory of Physical Chemistry of Matter (LPCM) at the University of Sherbrooke in Canada, under the supervision of Professor Armand Soldera. My doctoral research focused on the molecular simulation of polymers, with my thesis titled "Atomistic Simulation of Fluoropolymers: Impact of Regio-defects on Characterization of Polyvinylidene Fluoride " The goal of my research was to bridge the gap between molecular and macroscopic systems of polymers through the integration of simulation, experiments, and theory. I had the privilege of being a co-author of the book "Handbook of Fluoropolymer Science and Technology" during my PhD, and I have published multiple papers in prestigious international journals such as Polymer and Polymer Science.
