A Complete Guide into the World of Physics,Chemistry and Materials. Throw at me any number of questions and doubts. I have a PhD in Physics, worked in Prestigious Labs across 3 continents including Ox

Methodology

I will be teaching anything in Basic Physics Chemistry and Materials Science since I have studied and performed advanced research in all of these subjects. I can help with basics doubts at all levels from Primary Schooling to Doctorate Level.!

Please do not hesitate to contact me for anything that you would require.!

Background

I have been giving lessons to my juniors and also at the place of my Research in India, Italy.

I have also cofounded Vigyanshaala, a well renowned Science Outreach organization, the work of which you find online. Please google it. So I can really communicate well and make you get the points crystal clear with various examples !

Rates

Rate for online lessons : £25/h

Details

My Rates will be dependent on the level of the student.

For Primary and schooling students, the rate is the one that is indicated. For Bachelors Level also the same level can be adjusted. For advanced Bachelors level and Masters Level it will be around 35-60 Pounds depending upon the complication of the required course. The charges will be reasonable, so do not worry.!

Professional Experience
 Marie Curie Fellow (ESR): Istituto Italiano Di Tecnologia (IIT), Italy 2014 –2016
I have initiated and implemented projects with researchers across Europe fulfilling commitments for EU. My focus was on Photovoltaics and Photodetectors:
o Defect Accumulation in Perovskite Solar Cells and Passivation using dopable semi-conductors: Here I demonstrate accumulation of defect and interface states using various transient photo- voltage/current lifetimes (nanosec.-sec) which are mostly built by me. This study gives a comprehensive understanding of the defect physics in Perovskite Solar Cells and provides design rules for interlayers.
o Highly Efficient Printed Colloidal Perovskite Photodetectors: Fabrication and Complete Characterization of printed perovskite (colloidal) photodetectors, obtaining record performances in Detectivity, Gain and Bandwidth through Selective Hole Circulation.
o Highly Exfoliated 2-D chalcogenides for Perovskite Photodetectors: 2-D layered materials (MoO3, WS2) applied for the first time as charge extraction layers in Perovskite Photodetectors with improved Specific Detectivity and Moisture Stability.
o Device engineering techniques for Solar Cells: Synthesis, fabrication of Perovskite Solar Cells by trap passivants, 2-D materials, interlayer chemistry (oxides, polymers), manipulating crystallization and associated techniques.

 Research Associate (DST) project: National Chemical Laboratory (NCL), India: 2012-2014
I Collaborated with chemical engineers & designed targeted solutions across interdisciplinary fields: My focus was on OFET & Fluid Dynamics for Solution Processable Devices:
o Fabricating Ultra-Long 1-D nanocrystals of Semiconductors using Evaporative Self-Assembly: Fabricated ultra-long nanocrystal assemblies (~3 mm long single crystal with aspect ratio ~104) of organic semiconductors by optimizing hydrodynamic evaporative processes of fingering instabilities and Coffee Rings: Highly relevant to Inkjet Printing & related techniques
o OFETs & Crystallization of novel chemical moieties: Fabricate organic field effect transistors with novel chemical moieties for applications in gas sensing, photo sensors.
 Research Assistant (DAE) project: JNCASR, Bangalore 2010-2012
We were the first in India to work on Stretchable-Wearable electronics & further apply them for Biological Stem Cell Applications:
o Facile Fabrication of Ultra-Stretchable Metallic Nano-cluster Films for Wearable Electronics: Fabricate ultra-stretchable Au electrodes on PDMS and rubbers by flash PVD, of Au nano-clusters. One of the highest performance with strain, multiple applications (stretchable heaters, inter-connects) demonstrated.
o Strain dependent electronic properties of conducting polymers, PEDOT:PSS: Explored electronic properties of conducting polymeric electrodes with strain. Showed anisotropic electronic transport with strain arises from directional scattering of the electric field while conduction becomes more “metallic” for disordered conductor.
o Stem Cell Differentiation on Stretchable Electroactive substrates: Participated in Differentiation of Embryonic Stem Cells on stretchable electro-active surfaces. Designed samples to make them biocompatible and acid resistant. Analyzed mechano-sensitivity studies for bio-implantations.
