BIO

About Me

I am a postdoctoral researcher at Sandia National Laboratories in Livermore, California. My research explores the possibility of using plasma in future energy using high-end, high-speed laser measurement techniques. I specialize in street photography and all forms of portrait photography.

I have been taking photos ever since I own a Codak camera at age seven. Of course, everything was film and print back then. I blew my pocket money pretty quickly! I had the incredible privilege of growing up in the vivid, rich culture of India. I used to bring my camera in crowded places, city markets, trains, sports field - in short, everywhere. So inevitably my love affair with street photography and human expressions began there along with an understanding of fast-moving composition and light forms. 

 

My doctoral and post-doctoral research heavily required imaging of ion, plasmas, flames. I explore physics of complex phenomenon using expensive, sophisticated cameras. Besides research, I perform photography experiments to express science as art forms. Over the years I've developed a style that pushes the boundary between art and science.
