I was born in India; I received my Bachelor's degree in Polymer Chemistry (2003) from University of Calicut (India) and Master's degree in Polymer Chemistry (2005) from Shivaji University, Maharashtra (India). I obtained my Ph.D. degree, a European Doctorate degree (2010), in Materials Science & Technology from Politecnico di Torino, Italy on "U V-curable polymer electrolyte membranes for lithium based batteries application" under the guidance of Prof. Roberta Maria Bongiovanni and Prof. Nerino Penazzi. I am co-author of 65+ publications published in peer reviewed international journals. I have attended 30+ conferences in Italy and abroad. I received best paper award thrice from different international conferences. As a young scientist, I have received several recognitions. In 2010, I was adjudged as the winner of the Oronzio and Niccolo' De Nora Foundation Prize of Electrochemical Division of the Italian Chemical Society for the Ph.D. thesis. In 2012, I was also adjudged as the winner of the most prestigious ENI AWARD 2012 –Debut in research category, the ceremony was held at the Italian president Giorgio Napolitano Palace in Rome. The Scientific Review Panel of the Eni Awards is composed of 24 members, including university chancellors, the two Nobel Prize winners Harold Kroto and Robert Richardson, and researchers and scientists from leading centres of study and research worldwide. Whilst pursuing my Masters degree (2004), I was the recipient of ‘Shivaji University Merit scholarship’, awarded for the meritorious performance in the M.Sc. Part I exam. Since 2009, I am member of Asian Polymer Association (APA). From July 2005 to December 2006, I worked at the R & D department of Asian Paints Limited, Mumbai (India), as a Technologist where I acquired hands on experience on emulsion polymerization, nano emulsions, core and shell emulsions and its characterization techniques.
