Dr. Navpreet Kaur

NAVPREET KAUR was born in 1990 in Punjab (India).

She had obtained Bachelor of Science (major in Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics) degree from Govt. College Ropar (Panjabi University, Patiala) in 2010. While, in 2012 she obtained Master of Science in Physics (Horns) from Guru Nanak Dev University Amritsar (India) and her master thesis was on “Structural Properties of Cobalt Doped Lanthanum Iron Oxide LaFeO3

In 2014, she was awarded with fellowship for pursuing PhD degree at Department of Information and Engineering (University of Brescia, Italy) under the curriculum of “Physical Science and Engineering”. The main Focus of her research activities during the PhD were synthesize  the different metal oxides (NiO,WO3, ZnO) nanowires and heterostructures (NiO/ZnO) by using vapor phase growth method; characterization of nanostructured materials with different techniques such as SEM, TEM, XRD, RAMAN spectroscopy etc. and sensor devices fabrication using Magnetron Sputtering and their testing towards different gases spices.

On May, 2017 she was awarded with PhD degree with her thesis entitled “Vapor phase growth of NiO, WO3 nanowires and NiO/ZnO heterostructures for gas sensing applications”.

Moreover, during her PhD degree, she had spent 3 month period as a visiting researcher at Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore. During this secondment, he was worked on the synthesis of Polyaniline (PANI) nanofiber using electrodeposition for sensing applications.

Currently she is working as a Postdoctoral Researcher at University of Brescia (Sensor Laboratory) on a project entitled “Synthesis, optimization and characterization of different metal oxides nanowire based heterostructures using vapor phase growth method for gas sensing applications”
