Material Technology - Professor (Contract)/ Dean of Research(Technology) Research & Innovation Centre
I have been working on inorganic nanostructures for application in photovoltaics, energy storage, electronics, optoelectronics, and healthcare areas since 1985. I developed new materials and processes for synthesis of nanomaterials and tailoring of their properties; new protocols for solar energy harvesting and energy storage. I hold 20 patents in the area of materials, solar cells, and supercapacitors and published over 100 papers in ISI rated journals. My papers have been cited 3200 times in published literature. My h- and g- indices are 29 and 52, respectively. Details of my publications and citation profile can be accessed at public domain through google scholar and ORCiD database.
