Abhijeet Ojha

Abhijeet joined the group as a Ph.D. student in December 2013. He is currently studying the influence of platelet size and complex solution chemistry on the gelation behaviour of graphene oxide. In the future, he aims to utilize thin films of these 2D nanomaterials in coatings, biosensors and energy storage devices.

M.Tech. (2012): University of Rajasthan (In collaboration with NCL Pune)
B.Tech. (2010): University of Rajasthan

Research Description:
His research focuses on the synthesis and characterization of two-dimensional (2D) graphene-based nanomaterials, their rheological studies and various applications.
