  Research Interests  
My research program will focus on a) understanding the fundamental aspect in host-guestchemistry and developing “Next generation supramolecular molecules and MOF material” for novel applications towards structural determination from small (ex. pharmaceutically important molecules to natural products) to macromolecules (ex. proteins) as well as snapshot of chemical reactions by in-situ X-ray crystallography, and asymmetric catalysis.
