M. Tech in Nanotechnology
Priyanka Ganguly is a Marie Curie Early Stage researcher in Bendable Electronics and Sensing Technologies (BEST) group at the University of Glasgow. She is completing her PhD from Institute of Technology Sligo, Ireland. She graduated with an M. Tech in Nanotechnology from Central University of Jharkhand, India in 2016. While studying for her master’s degree, Priyanka undertook several research projects in nanomaterial synthesis and characterization. The main research theme of her study includes the synthesis and characterisation of 2-D nanomaterials, ternary chalcogenides and several metal oxides for various energy and environmental applications. She has authored/co-authored more than 20 research articles and presented in several international and national conferences (6 oral and 1 poster presentation).
Priyanka’s research interests include:
• Synthesis and characterisations of various 2D nanostructures such as graphene, MoS2, Boron Nitride, MXenes.
• Synthesis and characterisations of metallic (Au/Ag/Cu) and metal oxide (TiO2/ZnO) nanoparticles.
• Study of these nanomaterials for photocatalytic applications such as degradation of organic pollutants, hydrogen generation and antimicrobial disinfection.
• Study of these nanomaterials for energy applications (battery materials and for flexible supercapacitors).
