Bhavesh is currently pursuing his PhD under the guidance of Dr. Rakesh Mote (IIT Bombay) and Dr. Jing Fu (Monash University). In the research themes of nanotechnology and advanced computational engineering, he is working on a project titled “Study of ion beam interaction with materials and nanostructure fabrication” which is aimed at modeling and optimizing nanofabrication processes to realize complex plasmonic micro/nanostructures with specific applications in optics/photonics,bio-sensing, and microfluidics. He did BSc in Physics from Christ College, Saurashtra university (Rajkot) then pursued MSc Materials Science with specialization in Nanotechnology from The M. S. University of Baroda (Vadodara) and during MSc he carried out dissertation at Jadavpur university (Kolkata). After completion of MSc, for the period of one year he worked as a lecturer, teaching Applied Physics in Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel Institute of Technology (Anand). Further he worked as a CSIR – Research Intern at National Physical Laboratory (New Delh), and as a Project Assistant at Indian Institute of Science (Bangalore) and Center for Nano & Soft Matter Sciences (Bangalore), his total research experience is 2.5 years. He has previously worked on electrical and optical studies of PbS nanocrystals, synthesis of PbS/Graphene nanocomposites and field emission properties of PbS thin films which was published in international conference proceeding and Journal of Advanced Microscopy Research. Before joining the academy he worked at Center for Nano and Soft Matter Sciences (Bangalore) on electrical transport in gold nanoparticles/Liquid Crystal nanocomposites under the guidance of Dr. Krishna Prasad, this work was published in the journal Applied Physics Letters.
