I am a physicist whose primary research interest is the elasticity and mechanics of slender structures. During my Ph.D., I applied these concepts to study how the pattern of minuscule crevices present on the skin of African bush elephants forms (check out more details here).

I am also interested in astrophysics, image-based 3D reconstruction and imaging (especially photography). More on that here.
