Welcome to my personal webpage

A little about myself

Hi! My name is Chirom MEIRABA Meitei. I was born and raised in the far North-eastern part of India called Manipur, a place stricken with poverty, arm conflict and virtually invisible in the country's map. Typically with the oriental asian look, faced many hurdles in competing in the nation's premier top research institute. Apart from the academics, I am an aspiring Karateka, and I love organising motivational and science promotional talks to school children everytime I visit my lovely homestate.

Research interests:

My research interests basically lies in the nano-materials science and nanotechnology. Presently, I am interested to work on electronic materials like multiferroics, semiconductors and superconductors, LEDs and solar cells
