Thank you for visiting my site. I am a Schmidt Science Fellow and postdoctoral researcher in the Aaswath Raman Group at the University of California (Los Angeles), where I am developing spectrally selective surfaces (i.e. surfaces that behave differently for different wavelengths of light) for controlling light and heat. In particular, I focus on novel but inexpensive technologies to address critical needs in developing countries.

My scientific interests are in:

  • Optical design.
  • Random metamaterials, plasmonics.
  • Passive cooling, heating and lighting.
  • Paints and coatings.

Topics I am interested to collaborate on and/or learn more about:

  • Sustainable buildings and architecture.
  • Climate action and geoengineering.
  • Water harvesting and purification.
  • Meteorology and earth sciences.
