Dr. Shalini. V was born in 1994 in Kolar district, Karnataka. She graduation (B. E) in Electronics and Communication from Sri Venkateshwara College of Engineering (VTU affiliate), Bengaluru in 2015. She holds Master Degree in Nanotechnology from The National Institute of Engineering, Mysuru, in 2017. She has did her research in the field of wearable thermoelectric generators based on polymers & TMDCs for which she has received a Ph.Ds. in Engineering and Nanotechnology from Shizuoka university, Japan (2023) and SRM University, Chennai (2022). There she was motivated by her Professors and more specifically in engineering education, she then started working immediately in the Department of ISE in SVCE, Bengaluru.
Dr. Shalini V has started working in the research area of Smart materials, Polymer based thermoelectric materials, TMDCs, wearable thermoelectric generators and contributed around 10 Publications in International peer-reviewed journals with 103 citations. Along with her Ph.D. experience, She have participated in many National and International workshops/conferences and also participated in Japan-India and Japan-China Youth Exchange Program in Science (SAKURA Exchange Program in Science-2018 and 2019), Shizuoka University, Japan. With this, she has got the opportunity to work as a research exchange student at Shizuoka University, Japan as a part of her Ph.D. work from 5th October 2018 to 31st March 2019 under the guidance of Prof. Hiroya Ikeda. Along with this, she have received the prestigious “Monbukagakusho-MEXT scholarship” by the Government of Japan to do her Ph.D. degree in thermoelectric materials under the supervision of Prof. Hiroya. Ikeda, Shizuoka University, Japan from October 2019 to September 2022. She has handled various analytic instruments for materials characterization such as X-Ray Diffractometer, Raman spectroscopy, UV-Visible Spectroscopy, Field Emission Scanning Electron Microscope (FE-SEM) with EDS, Scanning Transmission Electron Microscope (STEM), X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR), Hall measurement, ZEM3 and LFA. Along with this she has also holds a experience in designing and constructing a wearable thermoelectric using conducting fabrics.
