Professor Siddharth Patwardhan
Dr. Siddharth Patwardhan is a Professor of Sustainable Chemical and Materials Engineering at the University of Sheffield, where he leads the Green Nanomaterials Research group with a vision to develop green routes to functional nanostructured materials. He has experience assessing the scalability of and developing manufacturing technologies for various nanomaterials, including nano-silicon powders.
Technologies allowing scaled-up continuous manufacturing of these novel materials are also being developed under his supervision. The focus is on increasing the technology readiness level (TRL) for new developments and delivering technologies that are ready for commercialisation.
He is author of a book, on nanomaterials, 70+ publications, 50+ presentations at conferences and a number of inventions.
