I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering, IIT Delhi. I work in the field of nanomagnetism and spintronics, which uses the spin of the electron as opposed to its charge for computation. Spintronic devices have been demonstrated to be much less power consuming than their semiconductor counterpart and hence can pave the way for next generation computing.

My research is mostly in the area of metallic spintronics, with a focus on efficient mechanisms of switching the magnetization state which acts as the bit for information storage. Spin transfer torque in magnetic tunnel junctions and spin orbit torque in heavy metal-ferromagnet hetero-structures are two such mechanisms. I look at the fundamental physics governing these mechanisms as well as try to engineer new kind of memory and computing devices that implement these mechanisms. Please check the Projects and Personal sections of this webpage for more information.

Personal: I am also an active blogger and I write several fiction/ non-fiction posts based on various other interests I have. Please check them out over here
