Activities and Societies: Robotics Club, Finance Club, Entrepreneurship Cell Hi. I have an experience on synthesis and characterization of Lanthanum-based transition metal perovskites by "Soft Solution" methods for catalytic and gas-sensing applications. Currently, at IIT Bombay, my PhD work is focused on Thermoelectric Materials. I am fabricating a fully-automated (computer-controlled) setup for simultaneous measurement of Seebeck Coefficient-electrical conductivity and thermal conductivity of materials at elevated temperatures. Further, I am doing the modelling and simulation of heat flow through the various thermoelectric materials. This also involves optimization of the various parameters to achieve the best thermoelectric conversion efficiency. We are (re)searching for new TE materials for low-cost, non-toxic, thermally more stable and moderate temperature use, especially for automotive applications. The work further expands to final device/module modelling, simulation, and fabrication.
