Biography: Dr. Shalini Singh is an associate professor at the Department of Chemical Sciences, University of Limerick. After 1st class honors in MSc (Chemistry) from DDU University India, she received a research fellowship by Depart. of Sci. and Tech., India to carry research on polymeric membranes and electro-membrane processes in Gujarat India. Following this, she moved to Limerick, Ireland to pursue PhD at University of Limerick with INSPIRE structured PhD Programme. In 2016, she received PhD degree for her work on designing multicomponent metal chalcogenide semiconductor nanocrystals using methods of colloidal chemistry. She subsequently joined Ghent University, Belgium to explore the surface chemistry of colloidal nanocrystals systems using solution NMR technique as a toolbox. She was awarded the prestigious FWO (Research Foundation, Flanders Belgium) postdoctoral grant in 2017 to work on designing novel semiconductors for photonic applications. Her research interest is focused on the development of shape, phase, and compositionally tunable colloidal semiconductor nanocrystals for energy conversion applications along with surface dynamic study and optoelectronic properties tuning of semiconductor nanocrystals.
