  4. Energy conversion & Storage
  5. Graphene

Her research area is to design functional nanomaterials for energy and environmental applications. She investigates various synthesis possibilities with respect to their structure-property correlations of multi-functional nanomaterials mainly based on graphene and composites for applications such as clean energy production and storage. Making efficient sustainable and inexpensive organic-inorganic nanohybrid materials based on societal and technological demands is the main objective. Currently She is working in the mentor ship of Prof Roop L. Mahajan, Virginia Tech USA to design the efficient and non-precious electrocatalyst for metal-air batteries, facile and economic production of graphene and and nano-coatings on PPEs to fight against the current pandemic situations.
