Dr. Manish Kumar received his doctoral degree in Physics (from Indian Institute of Technology Delhi), which involved study of mesoporous oxide and plasmonic nanocomposite thin films. During 2009-12, he worked as Research Associate at Inter University Accelerator Centre on Ion-Matter interactions. During 2012-14, he worked as Assistant Professor at Central University of Rajasthan, and developed Thin Films Synthesis Facilities at the newly developing department of Physics, and supervised 6 M. Sc. research projects. During Nov. 2014-Feb. 2017, he worked at CAPST and led a group on plasma sputtering induced coatings for Energy, Optoelectronic- and Bio-applications. He was also involved in development of advanced plasma processing and measurement set-ups. Since March 2017, he is director of 'Organisation for Science Innovation and Research' India. Presently , he is also associated with I.nanoEnergy, a startup company of University of Porto. His research interests involve Thin films, Surface-interface effects, Photon-Matter interactions, Thermoelectrics, Plasmonics, Ion-Matter interactions, Plasma processes and Optical/ Energy/ Bio-applications. He has authored and co-authored more than 60 research articles in leading peer reviewed International journals and conferences. He is member of Material Research Society and life member of Materials Research Society of India. He is an editorial board member of Journal of Nanotechnology and Materials Science and also an active reviewer for major journals series i.e. Nature, Wiley, RSC, Elsevier, Springer etc.
