Background

Ujwala Ail received her Master’s degree in materials science from Mangalore University, India. She did her PhD on ‘thin film semiconducting metal-oxides by nebulized spray pyrolysis and MOCVD for gas sensing applications’ at the Materials Research Centre, Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, India in 2010. She has done her postdoctoral study at ICMCB, Bordeaux, France in an Indo-French project under the Centre for Promotion of Advanced Research, on ‘Nano-therm, nano structured and composite silicides for thermoelectric power generation’.

She is currently working as a postdoctoral researcher on the thermoelectric study of conducting polymer/inorganic composites. She is currently working as a postdoctoral researcher on the thermoelectric study of conducting polymer/inorganic composites.
