Short Biography

spacing

Ashutosh Tiwari is Associate Professor and Group Leader, Smart Materials and Biodevices at the world premier Biosensors and Bioelectronics Centre, IFM-Linköping University; Editor-in-Chief, Advanced Materials Letters and Advanced Materials Reviews; Secretary General, International Association of Advanced Materials; a materials chemist and docent in the Applied Physics with the specialisation of Biosensors and Bioelectronics from Linköping University, Sweden. Dr. Tiwari is honoured as adjunct/visiting professor at National Institute for Materials Science, Japan; University of Jinan, University of Jiangsu, China; DCR University of Science and Technology, India; and Founder Director, Vinoba Bhave Research Institute, India. Just after completed his PhD, he joined as young scientist at National Physical Laboratory, India and later moved to University of Wisconsin, USA for postdoctoral research. He obtained various prestigious fellowships including Marie Curie, The European Commission; JSPS (regular and bridge fellow), Japan; SI, Sweden; and from INSA, CSIR & DST, India. His research focus is on the design and advanced applications of cutting edge stimuli-responsive materials for novel biodevices. He is actively involved in the undergraduate, post graduate and PhD teaching in the field of smart materials, nanomaterials and atom-thick materials for biomedical, biosensing and bioenergy devices. Dr . Tiwari is recipient of prestigious 'The Nano Award', 'Innovation in Materials Science Award' and 'Advanced Materials Medal' for his notable contributions to smart materials and biomedical nanotechnology. He has more than 100 peer-reviewed primary research publications in the field of materials science and nanotechnology with h-index of 27. He has edited/authored over 25 books on advanced materials and technology for esteemed publishers in USA. He became series editor of Advanced Materials, WILEY, working group member of the technology integration of TD1003, European Cooperation in Science and Technology; and a founder member and co-chair of Advanced Materials World Congress, Indian Materials Congress, Smart materials and surfaces famous international events of materials science and engineering. Prof. Tiwari serves as scientific evaluator and member of panels of experts to various governmental and non-governmental agencies; member of PhD committee, and have been invited for plenary, keynote and invited lectures in the more than 20 countries. His current research on smart theranostics, nanobioreactors, programmable super-thin bioelectronics and affinity/MIP surfaces realised by the integration of intelligent materials has emerged as a versatile platform for building a new age technological outlets to tackle key challenges in medical, energy supply and environmental issues.

Summary

The research objectives of Smart Materials and Biodevices Group , keep the orientation of the most focus aspects of environmental friendly nanomaterials and nanotechnology for example, stimuli-responsive nano-systems engineering to industries and end users, particularly those involved in the material and biocatalysis sectors for solving real practical environmental problems connecting the development of innovative analytical methods, as support tool to the interpretation of processes. Further, our research targets particularly challenges posed to modern society by key emerging medical issues so-called trace and/or new emergent super-thin medical diagnostic tools. These objectives are also include the development, testing and validation of advanced methodologies and biomedical indicators related to research needs arising from recent and envisaged medical devices.
