I am a person with multiple interest and hence play different roles in life as an academic, a researcher, a photographer, a culinary, an astronomer, an amateur pianist and as a programmer. I was born and brought up in the city of Ernakulam which is now considered as the most developed city in the state of Kerala.
As an Academic :
I completed my bachelors degree in physics (certificate) from Aquinas College, Edacochin in 2005 and masters degree in physics (certificate) from St. Albert’s College, ernakulam in 2007. Thereafter, I started my teaching career as an adhoc lecturer in the department of physics, Aquinas College, Edacochin from 2007 to 2008 (certificate). Then I moved to the department of physics, St. Albert’s College, ernakulam and worked there as an adhoc lecturer from 2008 to 2012 (certificate). In 2013, I joined in a DST sponsored Major Research Project as a JRF fellow (appointment letter) in the department of physics, The Cochin College and registered for Ph.D. at Mahatma Gandhi University, kottayam in 2014, under the guidance of Dr. K. P. Harikrishnan. The title of my Ph.D. Thesis is “Nonlinear Time Series Analysis using Complex Network Measures”(Thesis). The Ph.D. is awarded in 2018 (certificate). At present I am working as Assistant Professor of Physics in the Department of Basic Science and Humanities at Rajagiri School of Engineering and Technology (RSET), Kakkanad. More about my academic details can be found in my curriculum vitae.
