Krishna is a research fellow in the school of Engineering at RMIT University, node of the ARC-COE for TMOS. Her research as part of TMOS is based on optimization of phase change materials for different photonic device applications, mainly on flexible substrates.

Before coming to Australia in 2021, she received her PhD. from the department of electrical and communication engineering at the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, India. During her PhD, she mainly worked on designing and fabrication of optical and electrical devices using different 2D materials and achieved very high responsivity for graphene-based photodetectors.

She has several publications in peer-reviewed journals and was also a recipient of prestigious Visvesvaraya scholarship from the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology, Government of India.
