I am presently working as a postdoctoral research associate at University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, Illinois, USA. Where, I’m involved in two projects funded by the U.S. Department of Energy; 1. Production of carbon nanomaterials and sorbents from domestic U.S. coal, 2. Development of coal-based supercapacitor materials for energy storage. I received my Ph.D. and master’s degree in chemical engineering from Indian Institute of Technology Guwahati, India, where I have developed low-cost templated carbons, graphene, silica materials and ZnO-based adsorbents for hydrogen storage, CO2 capture and desulfurization applications. I have contributed to 10 publications in peer-reviewed international journals, presented research work at 8 national and international conferences and attended 5 workshops. With that, I reviewed more than 60 research papers and I am serving as Editorial member of three research journals.
