After pursuing Masters, I always had an urge to explore more in the field of chemistry. At the same time, one of my friends’ professor suggested me about the advanced PhD program offerings in Taiwan. This led me to explore the study opportunities in Taiwan and I have accepted the admission offer from Chung Yuan Christian University along with DIGS fellowship under the guidance of Prof. Tsung Yen Tsai. I didn’t know Taiwan’s culture and I didn’t have any friends/ relatives in here. For the first time I have come to a foreign country alone and I was very much nervous about my living here. The initial days were not easy due to change in climatic conditions, food etc. However, my lab mates and other international mates have been very helpful and have been always there for me. My lab mates were my family here and we have explored all the popular places in Taiwan together and they also taught me some Taiwanese culture. Apart from that, CYCU has always organized many trips during winter and summer breaks which made me explore many Taiwanese traditions.


The four years during PhD were not easy, but however I have learnt a lot during this phase. Besides my research work, I have also worked in industrial projects such as Mitsubishi chemicals (Japan) project. I have also been to University of South Africa (UNISA) for a collaborated project work. During this time, I have also attended various national and international conferences and presented my research work.


I have obtained my Ph.D. degree in Chemistry (Nanotechnology) from the Chung Yuan Christian University (CYCU)-Taiwan in 2017. Soon after PhD, I got an opportunity to work as a postdoctoral researcher in the same department. I have also served as a research advisor for Climb Co. Inc. (USA based china company). In addition, I have been a member of technical program committee and reviewer for the World Academy of Science, Engineering and Technology (WASET). During this time, I have started looking for other job roles which could give me advanced industrial research and product development experience. In 2018, I have accepted the Senior Researcher position at BenQ Materials Corporation, Taoyuan. In BenQ, I have worked in different projects such as Quantum LED, super hydrophobic materials coating and bio-medical application materials, some of them have completed successfully. I have published more than 20 peer-reviewed research publications in the field of nanomaterials and polymer nanocomposites synthesis and have also written four book chapters in polymer composites and nanotechnology. I am currently reviewer for ACS, Springer and Wiley journals.


My work in BenQ has been always challenging and made me explore many research areas and I am loving my work and flexible lifestyle in Taiwan. My future goal is to develop a nanotechnology-based product which could make life of mankind easier and is accessible for everyone. In short, my research should be helpful to mankind in some way. If I get a chance, I would also like to be a teacher/advisor to the new generation scholars and guide them through.
