Scientific Research

I started my research career in 2010 when I joined Institute of Advanced Study in Science and Technology (IASST) as a Junior Research fellow under the project “Development of Proton Exchange Membrane for Fuel Cell by Plasma process”.

Fuel Cells – the future energy technology, is my current field of research. I am presently working on Proton Exchange Membrane Fuel Cell, the most promising technology that is seen as an alternative to combustible energy sources.
