Dr. Tripathi received his Masters in Organic Chemistry from DDU Gorakhpur University in 2006 and Ph.D. from CSIR-CSMCRI, Bhavnagar, in 2011. He was an Alexander von Humboldt postdoctoral fellow from 2011-13 in the group of Prof. Manfred Stamm at the Leibniz Institute of Polymer Research Dresden, Germany, where subsequently undertook Group Leader position prior to starting his independent career as an Assistant Professor at the Department of Materials Science & Engineering, IIT Delhi. During his research career, he has been awarded with prestigious fellowships such as DAAD and Humboldt fellowship (Germany), JSPS (Japan), Marie-Curie Fellowship (Eur. Comm.), DST-INSPIRE and UGC-FRP. Dr. Tripathi’s research spreads around polymer and nanomaterials synthesis, surface functionalization, nanoporous and charged membranes, and nanocomposites for applications ranging from energy, water, separation, catalysis, & environmental remediation. His research group's interest is targeted towards redox polymers for aqueous redox flow battery, materials for energy storage and heat management, water purification, self-cleaning surfaces, COFs & MOFs, and artificial cells for biosynthesis.
