Barkha Singh

Area of Research : Designing and Development of Nanomaterials for Cancer theranostics. Currently working on Inorganic nanomaterials for bio-imaging and photo- thermal therapy.

Date of Joining :  13 / 07 / 2017

She completed her bachelor's in biotechnology in the year 2015. In her undergraduate, she worked on a project entitled 'Expression, Purification, and Immunolocalization of Leishmania Proteins' under the supervision of DR. Amogh Shastrabuddhe, Scientist, MSB DIVISION, CSIR-CDRI, LUCKNOW. She completed her post-graduate studies (M. Tech in Nanotechnology,2017) at the Indian Institute of Technology Roorkee, where she worked on an INDO-UK project titled "Quantum dots conjugated drug delivery system encapsulated in biodegradable polymer microspheres" under the guidance of Prof. Kaushik Pal. In 2017, she joined as a Ph.D. scholar at the Centre for Research in Nanotechnology & Science (CRNTS), IIT Bombay, under the guidance of Prof. Rohit Srivastava. Her scientific interests include nanomaterial design and development for cancer theranostics. She is now working on various nanomaterials, including polymeric/protein, silica, and gold nanoparticles. Her current work focuses on developing MXene-based composites for biological applications like sensing, imaging, and Photothermal treatment.

Background : Masters in Nanotechnology from IIT Roorkee (2015-17).
