Ph.D. Technical Chemistry, Technical University Graz, Austria, 2019


Career Graph:

I received my Bachelors and Master’s degree from Amity University Uttar Pradesh in the year 2016. During this, I got to work at Indian Institute of Space Science and Technology, Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala at their Solid State Physics lab under the guidance of Dr. Jinesh, K.B. for my Bachelor’s thesis. Later, for my Master’s project I worked at Technical University of Graz, Austria at their Solid State Physics lab under the guidance of Dr. Karin Zojer.

During this, I got recommended for Ph.D. position in Dr. Gregor Trimmel’s group at Institute for Chemistry and Technology of Materials at Technical University of Graz, Austria. Here I worked on Perovskite solar cells and was awarded Ph.D. in the year 2019.
