Dr. Nanda was born in 1985 and earned his doctorate in Materials Sciences and Engineering (Biomaterials) from international graduate school of National Institute for Materials Science(NIMS), Japan in 2014. The degree was conferred by University of Tsukuba.In his doctoral thesis, he worked on the development of drug releasing porous scaffolds from polymeric biomaterials and applied those on skin, cartilage and bone tissue regeneration studies. He holds the background of B-Tech in Biotechnology (BPUT, Odisha:2004-2008) and M-Tech in Nanotechnology (IIT Roorkee, 2008-2010). Between 2014 to 2015, he held the position of a post-doctoral fellow at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) where he worked on preparation of cerium oxide nanoparticles for nanomedicine application. From 2016, he is working as a Research Fellow in at School of Materials Science and Engineering, Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore. He is also working as editor for Journal of Medical science and clinical Research.

Research Interests

His research interests include development of controlled drug releasing porous scaffolds for soft and hard tissue engineering application, On-demand soft tissue Bio-adhesives for internal wound care and blood vessel injuries, micro- and nanoparticle engineering for controlled release application and Lab-on-Chip medical devices for healthcare application.
