Dr Kshitij Bhargava is currently working as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering at the Institute of Infrastructure Technology Research And Management (IITRAM), Ahmedabad, India. His area of expertise is the fabrication and simulation of organic/inorganic semiconductor-based nano/opto-electronic devices such as field-effect transistors, solar cells, LEDs, and so on.
He completed his doctoral thesis under the kind supervision of Dr Vipul Singh in the discipline of Electrical Engineering at the Indian Institute of Technology Indore. During his doctoral degree he worked towards the fabrication and simulation of Organic Field-Effect Transistors (OFETs) and Photosensitive Transistors. The important feature of his work was that he was able to achieve a significant level of matching between simulation and fabrication results on OFETs. The motive of his research is to develop technology for the sustainable development of infrastructure around the world, but not at the expense of harming the environment.
Presently, he is working towards the modelling of thin film solar cells and thin film transistors based on the conventional and emerging class of semiconductors which can offer a variety of multidisciplinary applications in the consumer electronics market.
Apart from research and academia, he has a keen interest in sports and loves to watch and play outdoor games.
