She holds two post-graduate degrees - in Chemical Sciences from the University of Florida (with a specialisation in inorganic chemistry) and in Chemistry from the University of Glasgow (with a specialisation in synthesising lithium-ion battery materials).
Her master’s thesis at Florida was on “Chalcogen bridged tricopper cyclophanates for carbon dioxide fixation and utilisation” and her at Glasgow was on “New Routes to Magnetic Nanomaterials”. Prior to joining the Council, she was profoundly involved in interdisciplinary research and undergraduate teaching at University of Florida.
She has travelled to six countries and is keen on travelling to more. She enjoys reading tales on Hindu mythology, cooking, and listening to music.
