About Me

We work in the field of carbon nanotechnology with our main focus on synthesis and chemical functionalization of carbon nanostructured materials such as carbon nanotubes, graphene etc. for various technologically important applications. Presently, we study these materials for hydrogen storage, nanocomposites and nanofluids applications. We also plan to develop an environment-friendly route to replace the existing hazardous chemical processing of carbon nanomaterials.
