Research Interests

I inspect suitable properties of organic-inorganic perovskites for photovoltaic application using Density Functional Theory (DFT). It involves compositional engineering to tune material properties, employing passivation to eliminate various defects, studying charge carrier transport, and recombination in the solar cell.
