Research Interests:

  • Microwave initiated ultrafast nanomanufacturing for hierarchical, multifunctional nanomaterials and nanocomposites: carbon nanotubes, metal chalcogenides etc.
  • Multifunctional polymer coating for anti-corrosion and anti-microbial applications
  • Green approach to conducting polymer nanotubes/nanofibers and nanocomposites with metals nanoparticles for catalysis, sensing and energy storage
  • Optically transparent, conducting films of carbon nanotubes on flexible substrates for device application, such as flexible display and organic solar cells
