        Welcome to Home Page of Dr. Scient. Vidya.

        I am a Researcher at the Department of Chemistry and Center for Materials Science & Nanotechnology.  

       The quest of mankind in exploring world of materials is remarkable ever since the stone-age. In order to improvise its lifestyle mankind is never-hesistant in exploring new materials and exploiting their properties. With the advent of high-power computers and efficient softwares, materials research reaches fascinating new frontiers. The development in material science and computer science complement each other interestingly.                                    

       I am working on density-functional calculations on fundamentally and technologically-significant materials. My current area of research include: Trasnparent-concuting oxides for opto-electronic applications, Magnetic oxides in two-dimensional nanostructures, Spin, charge and orbital ordering in perovskite-like oxides, Electronic, magnetic and optical properties of oxides.
