Biography

Dr. Shilpi Chaudhary obtained her MTech degree from the Indian Institute of Technology Delhi in 2010. She has been awarded Marie-Curie Fellowship in the framework of FP7/European Nano Invent in SMALL(Surface for Molecular Recognition at Atomic Level) network for doctoral studies. She earned a PhD degree for her experimental work on “Modification of Oxide Surfaces with Functional Organic Molecules Nanoparticles, and Hetero-Oxide Layers” from the Division of Synchrotron Radiation Research, Department of Physics of Lund University in 2015. Presently, she is working as a SERB – national Postdoctoral Fellow and focusing mainly on the fabrication and spectroscopic investigations of adsorption of organic molecules on Bio/Chemo- sensing surfaces.
