Dr. Shweta Sharma was born in Himachal Pradesh, India in 1993. She earned her PhD from Shoolini University of Biotechnology and Management Sciences in Himachal Pradesh, India under the guidance of Dr. Gaurav Sharma and worked on the project titled, “Designing of novel materials for advanced wastewater treatment.”
Dr. Sharma’s research interests mainly focus on the designing of photocatalytic and adsorbent systems that can be utilized for wastewater treatment. She has worked on the schemes involving the development of heterogeneous catalytic systems employing synthetic metal-oxides, g-C3N4, and metal-free photocatalytic systems. She has also developed a super adsorbent hydrogel that showed excellent ability for the adsorption of various organic dyes from wastewater. Dr. Sharma’s projects have been recognized and published in various prestigious international journals.
Dr. Sharma is currently working as a postdoctoral research fellow in Prof. Lilac Amirav’s group at the Technion- Israel Institute of Technology. She aims to explore efficient oxidative pathways for meaningful organic transformations combining the direct conversion of sunlight to clean with renewable H2 from wat; specifically focusing on the oxidative transformation of toxic molecules of dyes and plastic. Apart from her research, Dr. Sharma enjoys music, dancing, and cooking in her leisure time.
