I am trained as an electro-analytical chemist and have strong interest in working in inter-disciplinary research areas. My early research work has focused strongly on the development of electro-chemical sensing devices for different applications. Currently, my team is working on inter-disciplinary areas so as to support colleagues from other disciplines, e.g. engineers and defense science scientists. We hope to develop micro-devices for field based applications. Another multi-disciplinary area is in green chemistry area in which plants are used as “biological” mops to clean up the pollutants.
