About me

I am a research fellow at the Department of Chemistry, University of Warwick. I am part of the Warwick Electrochemistry and Interface Group (WEIG) and based at the main campus of the University.

Research interst

My research interests are focused on understanding nucleation and growth of metal on the diamond surface (boron doped), electrochemical synthesis of nano-structures, understanding events at the solid liquid inteface, catalysis and metal recovery from industrial synthetic solutions for greener and more environmentally friendly industries.

I use wide range of techniques such as TEM, STEM, AFM, SEM, XRD, XPS, XDS, XRF, NMR, UV-vis and Mass spectrometry.

On a wider scale, I am interested in energy and bioanalytical methods, sensors and analytical technique development.

I enjoy communicating science to public and general audience. I always have fun when I share with people how diamond can be made in the lab. I find it more interesting to demonstrate that diamond is not limited only to being a jewelry, we can use diamond in many fields, which can help improving people's life.

I find it important and essential for scientists to reach out to students and public to encourgae them considering STEM topics for future studies and career.

I have been involved in the following outreach activities

1) Royal Society Summer Exhibition - London - Diamond: more than just a gemstone

2) Science Museum - London - Science Lates 2015

3) London Institute of Science Forum (LIYSF) - University of Warwick

4) Chemistry open day - University of Warwick

And here is some pics for fun!
