I have a multidisciplinary background. I have my BS in Metallurgy & Materials Sciences Engineering, MS in Mechanical Engineering and PhD in Mechatronics Engineering. I have been working on Printed Electronics since 2008. I have expertise in using several additive manufacturing techniques i.e. printing techniques like Electro-hydrodynamic Atomization technique (electrospray), Electrostatic Inkjet Printing technique (Drop-on-Demand & Patterning), Electro-spinning technique (Nano-fibers), Spin Coating, Dip Coating (thin films), Piezo-Inkjet technique, Screen Printing, Thermal Evaporation, Sputtering (thin films and patterns) and Casting (thin films) etc. In all the above mentioned techniques, patterns can be designed in the built in software and then can be fabricated by integrated commands to the machines. I have patented several processing & manufacturing techniques. I am interested to explore more materials (1D, 2D & 3D) and investigate their processing, large area production techniques and performance along with other functional layers for their applications in devices like Photovoltaic cells, Super-capacitor, Transistors etc., using additive manufacturing techniques I am deeply interested to explore more of the 2D materials like graphene, MXenes and play with their electronic properties by tuning their bandgaps by doping with nanoparticles/ one-dimensional materials or other 2D materials or by hybrid composites. My research interest includes exploring cheap and economical materials for energy harvesting and to develop processing techniques using optimized parameters to fabricate cheap product with excellent performance at larger area. I have strong will to continue my research on energy harvesting materials and their hybrid composites while using large area manufacturing processes. By doing so, the energy required for production can be minimized and maximum output can be achieved which is the major goal of current day research.
