I am an undergraduate student working under the supervision of Dr. Ravhi Kumar. My research work is on synthesis and characterization of strongly correlated materials using conventional solid state and arc melting techniques. I have performed XRD, XAS and Raman measurements at high pressures with diamond anvil cells at APS.
