Después de obtener el grado de doctor defendiendo la tesis “Synthesis and Characterization of Some Nanomaterials: Oxides, Carbides, Metals and Semiconductors”, realicé el Post doctorado (PDF) en Southern Illinois University, Carbondale. IL, USA, del 2009  al 2010, con anterioridad trabajé como investigador asociado en Banaras Hindu University desde el año 2000 al 2009.

El año 2012 inicié mi trabajo de docencia e investigación en el Departamento de Física de la Universidad de Santiago con los cursos: Física del Estado Sólido, Curso electivo Nanotecnología, Laboratorio de Física Moderna para las carreras de pregrado de Ingeniería.

Mis investigaciones abarcan los siguientes temas: Synthesis, characterization and application of various nanomaterials;

Synthesis of metal oxide and carbon based nanostructures (copper oxide, zinc oxide, tin oxide, iron oxide, lead oxide, Carbon nanotubes, graphene, graphene oxide etc) by electrolysis based oxidation, thermal oxidation, chemical/hydrothermal, chemical vapor deposition, spray pyrolysis methods etc. and their applications as photovoltaic and dye sensitized Solar cell;

Synthesis and high temperature tribological study of different mixed metal oxide nanomaterials (eg. metal molybdates, metal tungstates and metal vanadates). Synthesis via chemical, hydrothermal, sputtering methods etc;

Synthesis of metallic (silver, gold and copper) nanomaterials by reduction with herbs, chemical methods and their biomedical applications.
