Throughout its history, LPU has developed a variety of educational facets, and its students and graduates have, as a result, achieved great success in a variety of spheres, including academics and the arts. On the professional stage, we’ve seen a lot of LPU graduates who did a great job of showing off their skills and knowledge. Paulomi Singh, a graduate of LPU’s Bachelor of Technology in Nanotechnology programme, has been awarded the Prime Minister Research Fellowship, and we are overjoyed to be able to share this news with you today! 

She earned a Bachelor of Technology degree in nanotechnology and focused her major project on developing a polymer nanocomposite that is capable of functioning as a hydrogen-based sensor. She passed GATE exam and was granted admission to study at one of India’s most prestigious universities, the IIT (BHU) in Varanasi. Making an anti-bacterial mask was the focus of her project work for her master’s degree. In her master’s program, she studied material characterization, composite materials, the synthesis of nanomaterials and polymers, and the mechanical behaviour of materials. Currently, she is working on the perovskite solar cell project.

The Prime Minister’s Research Fellows (PMRF) Scheme was established to enhance the level of research conducted at several institutions of higher education located throughout the country. The programme intends to realise the aim of development through innovation by offering generous fellowships, which are designed to entice the brightest minds to pursue careers in research. The plan was disclosed in the spending plan for the 2018–2019 financial year.

After being able to meet the stringent requirements for the fellowship, she will now continue her research while adhering to stringent deliverables. Our alumna should be very proud of herself for reaching such a high and difficult goal, as are we.
