Biography







Dr. Nanda Gopal Sahoo earned his Ph. D. degree in material science from IIT Kharagpur in 2004. After pursuing his Ph.D. degree, he worked in several countries with eminent scientists for nine years in various fields of materials science especially in the field of carbon nano materials and gained expertise and scientific orientation in several streams. He held the Scientist position (2012-13) in the Institute of Materials Research and Engineering, A*Star, Singapore. Prior to this, he was attached as a scientist with the Energy Research Institute at Nanyang Technological University (NTU) (ERI@N) (2011-2012) where he worked on graphene based materials for fuel cell application. In 2008, he was awarded the most prestigious Lee Kuan Yew fellowship (2008-2011) in the School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering (MAE), NTU. Prior to the Lee Kuan Yew fellowship, he had the opportunity to work as a Research Fellow at the School of Chemical and Biomedical Engineering, NTU, (2006-2008) and at the Artificial Muscle Research Center, Konkuk University, South Korea (2005-2006).


After working for several years with different eminent groups, Dr. Sahoo joined the Department of Chemistry, Kumaun University, Nainital as Associate Professor in 2013. He worked for the establishment of  Nanoscience and Nanotechnology Centre at the University. He is among the few BASE fellows sponsored by Indo-US Science and Technological Forum for advancing their research in the field of solar cell development in Virginia Commonwealth University, USA, 2014. His international and extensive research experience has allowed him to significantly contribute many areas of research and development such as fuel cell, nanopharmaceutical, drug delivery, polymer nanocomposites, polymer chemistry, and particle technology. He worked also as visiting scientist at Free University of Berlin, Berlin, Germany and Konkuk University, Seoul, South Korea.
