Dr. Pradeep K. Varshney
Professor and Director, Manav Rachna Research Innovation & Incubation Centre (MRIIC), India.
Dr. Varshney did his Ph.D. in Applied Chemistry & Polymer Technology from Delhi College of Engineering, Delhi University in 2007 and Masters in Chemistry from AMU, Aligarh. He has more than 25 years of teaching, research and administrative experience while working with Delhi College of Engineering (Now DTU), National Physical Laboratory, National Taiwan University, Taipei and LG-Elite Company South Korea including School of Engineering & Applied Sciences, New Delhi and Manav Rachna International Institute of Research & Studies, Faridabad.
Shveta Malhotra
Ms. Shveta Malhotra
PhD Candidate, Manav Rachna International Institute of Research & Studies, India.

Under the co-supervision of Dr. Varshney and Dr. Tang, Shveta is finishing her PhD work at UW Oshkosh in 2017-2018. Shveta obtained her MS degree in Chemistry from Jamia Millia Islamia University, India and her BS Honours in Chemistry from Delhi University, India. Shveta currently is working on the project of nonenzymatic detection of glucose facilitated by conductive polymer and metal nanoparticle composites.
