Personal profile

Dr Sridhar Govindarajan completed his First Class Engineering degree in Medical Electronics at Bangalore University, India in 2001. He then moved to Newcastle, UK, for his Masters in Biomedical Nanotechnology and then completed his PhD on Micro Biosensors at Newcastle University in 2008. He then joined Swansea University as a Postdoctoral Researcher working on multiple innovative projects relating to biosensors and point-of-care medical diagnostics. He was also part of the established Welsh Centre for Printing and Coating and the Centre for NanoHealth at Swansea University. He later moved to Leicester as a Senior Scientist within a spin-out company working on novel cell-based nanostructured biosensors in 2015, before joining De Montfort University as a Research Assistant within EMTERC in 2017. His current research interests include electrochemical biosensors, nanostructured materials for medical diagnostics, flexible electronics, and nanomaterials for renewable energy. He has also taught various modules at undergraduate and postgraduate levels in Electronics Engineering and Maths, and supervised student projects.
