Advait joined the Crozier Research Group in Fall, 2021 as PhD student. In his project he is working on Analyzing in situ Electron Microscopy datasets of Pt-Ceria nanoparticles.

He graduated with a combined B. Tech & M. Tech (dual degree) in Metallurgical and Materials Engineering from Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Kharagpur in Spring 2021. He also has a micro-specialization in ‘Electronic Materials and Applications’ from Materials Science Center at IIT Kharagpur. In his bachelors he worked on Li-ion and Na-ion batteries. He worked on layered and spinel oxides like NMC and LMO. Also, for Na-ion batteries he worked on symmetrical NASICON-based electrode materials. His B. Tech thesis work was published in the Journal of Alloys and Compounds ( In his Master’s thesis he worked on extracting transport properties by Classical MD simulations on different concentrations of LiTFSI salt dissolved in DME:DOL (1:1 volume ration) solvent.

He like to cook and try new food dishes in his spare time.
