Biography:

Dr. Poonam Uniyal received her Ph.D. degree in Physics from Indian Institute of Technology, Roorkee, India in 2010. Currently, she is working as an Associate Professor in Thapar Institute of Engineering & Technology, Patiala. Dr. Poonam has about 11 years of teaching and post PhD research experience. She has been involved in various research projects funded by CSIR, UGC and BRNS. She has published more than 20 publications in journals of international repute. Two of her research publications were included in JPCM(Journal of Physics and Materials science-IOP) highlights 2009. Her papers were among 5 top papers in multiferroics. She has guided three PhD and 10 M Tech/ MSc students. Her current research interests include functional nanomaterials(ferroelectric, piezoelectric, pyroelectric and multiferroic) for various applications such as energy conversion devices, high gate dielectric materials for MOSFET and FeRAM.
