Bio

‚Äč Extensive 6+ years of diverse research work and 2 years of project management experience in textile, nonwoven, fiber science, nanotechnology, bio-polymer processing, surface functionalization, nanocellulose, and green synthesis of carbon based nanomaterial (graphene & carbon nanotubes). I worked on many production technologies such as wetlaid, spunlace, nanofiber production through electrospinning, air-brush technique, and composite material preparation for relevant applications in conductive thin-films energy conservation, oil/ water filtration, photo-bio-catalytic water purification and bio-medical applications. I apply green chemistry principle to efficiently convert graphene oxide into graphene in an environment friendly way. This work has been cited by many research group throughout the globe in their studies for the application of efficient reduction of graphene oxide, improving electromagnetic shielding, and ion membrane. I worked on various textiles related fibers and made successfully commercial product HYDROSPUN Essential, used as flushable wipe which is solving many sewage water treatment facilities. To this date, I developed strong fundamental knowledge in nonwoven production technology, polymers, nanomaterial, fiber science, textiles, and got impressive research achievements with several published peer-reviewed articles, research grants, international collaboration, and award winning presentations.
