About

I have total experience of about  14 years of teaching chemistry and have been associated with Sharda group since the beginning. I am heading the Chemistry Department and have always remained an active member of various committees such as cultural, time-table, proctorial board, examination etc. of the Institution from time to time. During my doctoral studies I have gained expertise in syntheses, structural and thermal characterization of organic polymers (Epoxy Resins). I have published five research papers, one in National and four international Journal of repute. I have published two book chapters on Water Remediation in a book published by world renowned publisher-Royal Society of Chemistry. Recently, my  book chapter for world encyclopedia to be published by Wiley &Co. has been accepted.
