Christo Aluckal


I was fortunate to be part of a very dedicated research group during my undergraduate course. Below you can find the major projects that I have been a part of.


Over the course of my undergraduate course, I have tried giving back to the scientific community in various ways. Below you can find the major publications that I have helped co-author.
