Shailendra Kumar Sharma completed his integrated dual degree course (BTech and MTech) in chemical engineering from IIT Roorkee in 2016, with his master’s dissertation on “engineering nanostructures for enhanced photocatalytic activity”. He has a keen interest in working with energy devices and nanomaterials and had ample experience of working in these fields. Currently, he is pursuing his doctor of philosophy (PhD) from IITB-Monash Research Academy, IIT Bombay. At the academy, he is working on “Development of graphene-based composite materials for supercapacitors” project under the supervision of Dr. Sumit Saxena (IITB) and Dr. Raman Singh (Monash University). Before joining IITB-Monash research academy, he had worked on various projects, the fabrication of stable perovskite solar cells at University of Bayreuth Germany, design of the common effluent treatment plant in SIDCUL Haridwar at IIT Roorkee, and source apportionment of ambient particulate matter during winter season in Delhi City at IIT Madras, to name a few. His other interests include reading, writing, and cricket.
