Postdoctoral Research FellowUrmimala Maitra 

She completed her BSc from Banaras Hindu University (India) in Chemistry and her MS and PhD in Materials Science from Jawaharlal Nehru Centre for Advanced Scientific Research (India). Her MS project involved synthesis, functionalization, solubilization of carbon based nanomaterials like nanodiamond, carbon nanotubes, graphene and studying their magnetic and mechanical properties. During her PhD she carried out photocatalytic hydrogen and oxygen evolution studies using layered transition metal sulphides and transition metal oxides, respectively. She has joined the group as a Post-Doctoral fellow to work on synthesis and characterization of cathode materials for Na-ion and Li-air batteries.
