I was born and grew up in Kolkata, India, where I stayed until I completed my BS. Thereafter I moved to the "Bollywoodland" Bombay to finish my masters in physical chemistry. In the year 2002, I moved to the US to pursue my PhD. I Started at Tulane University with Prof S Thayumanavan, and eventually moved to University of Massachusettes situated in the beautiful town of Amherst in 2003. I worked on the amphiphilic polymeric and dendrimeric self-assembled systems during the course of my PhD. I finished my graduate studies on August 2007 and joined the Stoddart Research Group in January 2008. Right now I am working on the Donor-Acceptor systems in the group. Apart from work, I am a story book-worm, love swimming and watching Tennis (Roger Federer) and Cricket (India). Though I love soccer, but dont get to see much except for the World Cup once in 4 years.
