Dr. Vivek Polshettiwar is Associate Professor in the Division of Chemical Sciences at TIFR Mumbai. Dr. Polshettiwar after his Ph.D. in 2005 worked as a postdoc in France and USA for few years, before starting his own independent group at KAUST in 2009. In 2013, he moved to TIFR, and his group here working on development of novel nanomaterials for catalysis, energy harvesting and CO2 capture-conversion. Guiding principle of his group is that catalytic efficiency (activity, kinetics, selectivity and stability) can be controlled by tuning the morphology of nanomaterials. He has published nearly 100 articles with h-index 51 and around 10000 citations in reputed journals. He is recipient of prestigious ORISE Research Fellowship at US-EPA and several other esteemed postdoc fellowships. He was awarded as Top-25 cited author in 2011 by Tetrahedron and Young Scientist Award at DSL-2012. He also received Asian Rising Star lectureship at 15th Asian Chemical Congress (ACC), Singapore (2013), from Nobel Laureate Professor Ei-ichi Negish. In 2015, he was admitted as a Fellow of Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC), United Kingdom. Recently he was awarded Bronze medal by CRSI, India and also recognized as emerging investigator-material science by RSC. More at
