Welcome Abhishek ! New member of Smart Plastics Group

It is with great pleasure that we welcome Dr Abhishek Kumar as a post-doc researcher in our group to manage and carry out research work in the frame of 2 Research Projects related to the development of Quantum Resistive Sensors.

Abhishek Kumar is a postdoctoral researcher at Université Bretagne Sud, France. He is working in the domain of carbon nanomaterials, electrochemistry and thin films to develop chemical sensors for environmental and healthcare monitoring. He obtained Ph.D at Clermont Auvergne University, France in 2015, while working on mass sensors development for volatile organic compounds detection in air. He received his Master degree at Grenoble Alpes University, France in Nanoscience and Nanotechnologies. He was a recipient of FAPESP postdoctoral fellowship (2016/07461-1) for 3 years at Sao Paulo University, Brazil to pursue research on nanoporous material and organic macrocycles electrochemistry and their applications in energy and sensors technologies. He did his 2nd postdoc activity at Université de Bourgogne, France in the area of organic heterojunction sensors development for redox gases detection. He was awarded a prize from Club Microcapteurs Chimiques (CMC2) of France in 2020 for his contribution in the research area of gas sensors.
