Aspires to be a chemist with a strong computational and theoretical background to understand and investigate molecular excited-state processes, non-covalent interaction assisted phenomena such as crystallization, catalysis etc., efficient charge transport capable molecules and other fundamental quantized phenomena in molecules


2016 - Present

Indian Institute of Science Education and Research,



The emerging field of charge transport in organic molecules probed with hopping theory, transient localization theory and band theory.

Charge Transport

Understanding the non-covalent interactions is important in crystallography and catalytic  chemistry for acquiring the maximum out of the molecules.

Non-Covalent Interactions

Various exciting excited state phenomena such as singlet fission, aggregate induced shifts, thermally activated delayed fluorescense, are few among the vast topic.

Excited State Dynamics

Reaction mechanism  is the soul of  organic chemistry. Understanding the way of synthesis can help in tuning and emerging new synthetic possibilities.

My Inspiration

Prof. Mahesh Hariharan

Mahesh Hariharan is a Professor, School of Chemistry at the Indian Institute of Science Education and Research Thiruvananthapuram. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry and an associate editor for (i) Photochemical and Photobiological Sciences and (ii) RSC Advances. His research efforts primarily focus on understanding the interaction of light with biomolecules and crystalline organic materials.

Fellowships and grants
