Background and activities
I am currently a PhD candidate in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering, as part of the corrosion and surface science research group. I completed my master's degree in Physics from IIT Delhi.
I am originally from India and have been in Norway since 2015.
As a PhD, I work on corrosion of Aluminium alloys.This is part of the project "Fundamentals of Intergranular Corrosion in Aluminum Alloys (FICAL)", where the ambition is to understand intergranular corrosion. More specifically I work with 6000 series aluminium alloy. I am studying Initiation and Propagation of Intergranular Corrosion in 6000 series aluminium alloy. The aim is to optimize the corrosion properties of Aluminium alloy so that it can be used an alternative material for automotive industry.
