Isha has a Ph.D. in Chemistry from Banaras Hindu University, India. Her research focuses on synthesis, characterization and application of metal nanoparticles as colorimetric probes for environmentally/biologically relevant analytes such as, sulphide, cysteine, homocysteine and glutathione. She studied the sensing mechanism, phenomenon of self-assembly as well as various factors affecting the optical properties of these materials. At OIST, she started with fabricating/synthesizing materials and later joined as a postdoc to work at the interface of Chemistry and Physics on Magnetic levitation of organic liquids. Following her passion for synthesizing smart materials, she is starting as a postdoc in pi-Conjugated Polymers Unit from February 2022.
He loves Hiking, workout and cooking.
