He is an interdisciplinary nano-interventions researcher, academician and administrator. As a researcher, my research work is broadly focused on nanobiotechnology, nanochemistry, and forensic nanotechnology. He has been the Research Associate (2013-2016) as well as Young Scientist (2016-2017) at Institute of Life Sciences, Ahmedabad University for about 3 years. He completed his Ph.D. in Nanobiosensors, Nanocatalyst and Supramolecular Nanoassembly from Gujarat University in the year 2013 and Master’s degree in Organic Chemistry from Sardar Patel University in the year 2008. He has received multiple projects with various funding agencies such as DST, SERB & GSBTM. To date, he has published more than 50 research articles in high repute international Journals. He has published more than 7 book chapters in the international publishing agency and also a book on the “Introduction of Forensic Nanotechnology as Future Armour” with Nova Science Publisher USA. In addition to this, he is an editor of two more books on Micro/nanofluidics and lab-on-chip based emerging technologies, Elsevier publisher and Self-Assembled nanomaterial, Elsevier, publications. Currently, his research focuses on the development of affordable nano devices for disease monitoring, agricultural nano-products, and products for societal use. As an academician, he taught Organic and Analytical chemistry, Nano-Biotechnology, Biochemistry and Forensic nanotechnology. As administrator, he is heading IAR placement cell and industrial relations, program coordinator (BSc), member secretary, SSIP and IAR startup and entrepreneurship cell. As an inventor, he has developed indigenous rapid flow through based point-of-care Immuno-Kit for the early detection of heart fatty acid-binding protein (h-FABP) on myocardial infarction.
