Avnee Chauhan obtained her master’s degree (M.Sc) in Applied Physics from Amity University, India in 2017. She did her M.Sc thesis in Raja Rammana Centre for Advanced Technology (RRCAT), Indore, India on the topic “Studies on nano phosphor materials to enhance the efficiency of amorphous solar cell“. After her master‘s degree she joined Indian Institute of technology, Madras as a Project Associate and worked on fabrication of polymer-based materials for thermoelectric applications under the guidance of Prof. Dillip K satapathy from 2018 to 2021.
Her research works were focused in the areas of inorganic and organic thermoelectric materials, wearable textile thermoelectrics and up-conversion luminescence which were funded by government agencies such as Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) and Department of Science and Technology (DST), India. She gained expertise in operating and maintaining equipments such as ULVAC-ZEM-3 (Seebeck coefficient and electrical conductivity measurement), Retsch- Cryomill, Rigaku X-ray diffractometer. Some of her research outcomes were published in notable journals such as Sustainable Energy & Fuels, Physical Chemistry Chemical Physics and ACS Omega.
Following her research experience as Project Associate, she joined FunGlass to pursue her doctoral studies in the department Joint Glass Centre (Vitrum Laugaricio – VILA)
