Dr. Manish Sharma obtained his B.Sc (Electronics) in 1997 and M.Sc (Electronics) in 2000 from CSJM, Kanpur University. He received his Ph.D. (Applied Science) in 2016 from Sharda University, Greater Noida. Initially in 2003 he Joined as Process R&D engineer in world second largest optical data storage industry i.e. MOSER BAER (I) Ltd. From April 2003 to June 2009, he served in the Industry and received various awards and reorganizations like Key resource of the Company, Best performance award, Six Sigma Yellow and Green Belt etc. During the industrial tenure, Dr. Manish has completed various projects of data storage techniques as well as on thin film deposition techniques. In year 2009 he joined Sharda University and gets engaged in the teaching of graduate and post graduate courses and further research activities in the field of atmospheric science and materials sciences. During this period Dr. Sharma published more than 15 International research papers in SCI indexed journals. Dr. Manish has the collaborations with different National and International research groups and Universities in which some of them are Aryabhatta Research Institute of Observations Sciences (ARIES), Max Planck Institute of Chemistry (MPI), Mainz, Germany, Chapman University, CA, USA, University of South Africa, SA etc. Presently Dr. Sharma is also associated with the Satellite Remote Sensing Group, Max Planck Institute, Mainz, Germany in one the International Project i.e. Monitoring and analysis of NOx over Greater Noida using differential Optical Absorption Spectroscopy. Two patents were already filled and one is under progress by Dr. Manish.  Dr. Sharma has attended more than 25 National and International Conferences and Workshop in India as well as Abroad. The successfully organization of more than 10 National conferences and three International conferences are also in his credit. Dr. Manish has visited various countries like Germany, South Africa, Scotland (UK), etc, for research projects as well to attend scientific conferences.
