Born in India in March,97, Shankar has a passion for research in physics and material science. Currently, He is a Doctoral Student at Department of Electronic Materials Engineering, Research School of Physics and Engineering. He is working on the development of novel composite nanopore membranes.
Using high-energy ion irradiation and chemical etching provides an industrially compatible technology for the fabrication of extremely small nano-pores in a variety of materials. Combining this technology with 2D materials such as Graphene or ultra-thin film deposition enables the fabrication of nanopore membranes with desired functionalities that can be used in medical and biological sensors, ultrafiltration and lab-on-the-chip applications.
He wishes to continue his research in Physics with a belief that he can make a significant contribution to his field.
