About Me

The applicant is a former National Science Talent Search Scholar, who is amongst very few who served the country throughout his career. He served 3 state agricultural universities in various capacities including as Director, Electron Microscopy & Nanoscience Laboratory at PAU, Ludhiana. He is one of the pioneers in initiating research on nanotechnogy for farm situation. He is an inventor of 3 International PCT and 4 national Patent Applications, which disclose fabrication of P and Zn nanofertilizer, and nanofabrication and Rock Phosphate beneficiation processes. Industries like M/s Corromandel and M/s Reliance have shown interest on these inventions. One of his papers is archived by US National Institute of Health. He is an expert of the Research Council of Oman, and received many other national and international recognitions.
