I’ve earned a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering (Nanoelectronics, Fuel Cell) in the area of “Micro / Nano-Fuel Cell for Portable Applications: A Multi-Fuel Solution“ from Indian Institute of Technology Bombay, India on 04/03/2015. Presently I’m an Independent Scientist. I received the prestigious “Council of Scientific & Industrial Research Human Resource Development Group, Government of India – Senior Research Fellowship (CSIR-SRF)” during my Ph.D. Also, I was nominated for the prestigious ENI Award 2017 aka Nobel Prize of Energy Research in the “The Frontiers of Energy” category for scientific achievements in the field of research related to Fuel Cell Awarded by an Italian oil and gas company, Eni. I’m having total research experience of 10 years and 11 months (total 72 months of nanofabrication of III-V, II-VI, III-N, Si, MEMS devices experience) and teaching experience of 5 years 5 months for undergraduate as well as graduate courses. Also I’ve published 7 international SCI journal publications, 31 international / national conference publications, filed 5 U.S. (02 Granted and all published online), 1 PCT (published online), 1 EU (published online) and 5 Indian patents (published online) in the area of micro / nanofuel cell and applications. Moreover, experience in setting up of nanofabrication and characterization facilities at CEN, IITBNF Indian Institute of Technology Bombay, India. I’ve gained experience handling various nanofabrication and characterization tools. Also worked on projects on fabrication and characterization of magneto-optical spintronics devices, III-V, II-VI, III-N, GaAs, Si, NVM, MEMS devices, LEDs, Solar Cells, GaAs photodetector, GaAs quantum Dots, IR and UV Schottky sensors, Gas sensors, India’s first GaN HEMT. I’ve gained experience in using Raith 150 Two®, which is integrated with SEM, EBL and GIS modules, also I’ve gained experience in using Double Sided Aligner (Optical Lithography, EVG620). Also mentored 15 Ph.D. students, 24 M. Tech. students, 20 research staffs, 30 technical staffs at Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay, Mumbai, India. Attracted funding’s from various government agencies / industries by writing research proposal during my Ph.D. tenure.
