I have joined Tampere University as a Post-doctoral research fellow for Transient Electronics for Sustainable ICT in DigitaL Agriculture Project. My current scientific interests focus on synthesizing nanocomposites and utilizing the same to fabricate 3D-printed supercapacitors using additive manufacturing methods and investigating their electrochemical behaviours for next-generation energy storage applications.
Fabrication, characterization and application of 3D Printed Supercapacitors.
Field of expertise
Synthesis of sustainable nanomaterials (nanoparticles, porous materials, thin films, composites) for next-generation energy storage applications (supercapacitors and batteries).
Nanomaterials (nanoparticles, porous materials, thin films, composites) for next-generation energy storage applications (supercapacitors and batteries) and Catalysts and reaction engineering

The overarching goal is to develop high-performance green electronics using sustainable materials and processes and demonstrate their use in the energy digital agriculture sector. Digital agriculture as end-use is specifically used here because it provides a unique opportunity to evaluate the use of ICT in an impactful real-life application while providing the necessary testbed to evaluate the degradability of the proposed solution.
