Research Assistant Professor
Currently, I am a Research Assistant Professor in the Department of Chemistry and Research Institute, SRM Institute of Science and Technology (formerly known as SRM University). Earlier, I was a Postdoctoral Researcher in the laboratory of Groupe de Recherche sur l'Energie des MilieuxIonisés (GREMI) Orleans, France; Sciences de l'Atmosphère et Génie de l'Environnement (SAGE), Mines Douai, France. I received PhD in Cold Plasma Physics and Chemistry from Laboratoire de Physique des Plasmas (LPP), Ecole Polytechnique, Paris, France (2013). My research interests include Non Thermal Plasma (NTP) Technology & Heterogeneous Catalysis for Energy and Environmental Remediation Processes.
