About the Author
With a childhood dream of becoming an engineer by profession, Indraneel completed his Bachelor's degree in Polymer Engineering from Maharashtra Institute of Technology, affiliated with University of Pune, India in 2003 and was a recipient of prestigious Shri Siddhivinayak Gold Medal for achieving first rank in Polymer Engineering. He later went on to attain his Master's degree in Materials Science & Engineering from the Rochester Institute of Technology, USA in 2011. His PhD degree from School of Materials Science & Engineering, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore under the guidance of Asst. Professor Aravind Dasari earned him MSE Best PhD Thesis Award, Class of 2017. Upon completion of PhD, he continued to work as a post-doctoral fellow in Nanyang Technological University. His research interests include polymer structure-property relationship and product development. As of Dec 2017, he holds four Technology Disclosures and one Patent-pending invention. He has authored five first-author journal articles and one book chapter.
