Received Ph.D. from Jadavpur University in 2010, in Physics in the area of p-type transparent conducting oxide (TCO) material. Worked as a postdoctoral researcher in Institute of Physics, Bhubaneswar from 2010-2011. Presently holding FCT-postdoctoral fellow with CENIMAT-I3N scientific group from 2011. Working on oxide base thin film material for more than nine years. Main scientific interests: • Synthesis and applications of dimensional nanostructure base thin film material (basically p- type TCO). • To know about the nanoscale physical behaviour (like current conduction mechanism with structural growth) of materials. • The ultimate focus is on the utilization of the materials in " Transparent Electronics " including TFT, solar cells, memory device etc.
