My pursuit of nanotechnology led me to the prestigious Erasmus mundus master’s programme in nanotechnology(EMMNano). I spent a year each at the Catholic University of Leuven, Belgium & the Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden. During my masters thesis in 2013 I first worked with (then) novel nano material ‘graphene’. Realizing my desire to explore research projects at the academic-industry interface, I secured a doctoral fellowship at the Nanoscale Hybrid Electronics group, University of Basel, Switzerland under the supervision of Prof. Dr Michel Calame (now at EMPA, Switzerland). My research background spans chemical synthesis of 2D materials, microfabrication, biosensors, surface functionalization, electrical and optical characterization of nano material devices. Outside my immediate research interests, I am also interested in expanding into novel organ-on-chip, bio-printing and novel diagnostic approaches. I am presently exploring industrial application aspects of 2D materials.
