Dr. Neetu Talreja

Assistant Professor

Department of Science

Dr. Neetu Talreja completed her Ph.D. in Chemistry from Banasthali University. She has previously worked as a Researcher at the University of Concepcion, Chile, University of La Serena, Chile, Gachon University, South Korea, and Beijing University of Chemical Technology, Beijing, China.

Dr. Neetu mainly focus on interdisciplinary research involving nanomaterials and chemical sciences such as synthesis, characterization of nanomaterials (2D nanomaterials), and polymeric composite-based materials for energy and environmental applications. The leading field of science that is relevant to her area of interest consists of nanotechnology, nano-bioscience, and its application in environmental remediation (adsorption and photocatalyst), and energy. Dr. Neetu has published many research articles and has filed few patents also.
