I am from West Bengal, India. My interest in chemistry was induced by my uncle from my school days. So, after finishing my higher secondary studies, I decided to pursue a B.Sc degree in Chemistry at Midnapore College, India. Then I finished my master’s with Physical chemistry specializations in the same college. Afterward, I started my PhD journey at the Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur under the supervision of Prof. Samit K Ray and Dr. Anupam Midya. During my initial 3 years of PhD, I synthesized several nanomaterials (TMDCS, Oxides, GO, RGO, etc.) mainly by chemical approach for optoelectronic and electrochemical devices. Then, I shifted to lead halide perovskite. I mainly synthesized CsPbX3 nanocrystals by hot-injection and LARP process and utilized them to fabricate different types of optoelectronic devices such as solar cells, LEDs, and photodetectors. After receiving my PhD, I joined Pohang University of Science and Technology as a post-doctoral researcher under the supervision of Prof. Unyong Jeong. During my tenure at Phang University of Science and Technology, I was actively involved in post-synthetic ligand manipulations of CsPbX3 nanocrystals for better ambient/underwater stability. I was also involved in an industrial project focused on the “Wafer-scale growth of transition metal tellurides”.


In the Abolhasani group, I am studying the colloidal synthesis of optically active nanocrystals with flow chemistry and utilizing them to make solid-state devices.
