Hello, I am Banani Biswas, a PhD student in the PSI Thin Films and Interfaces Group. I am from Kolkata which is in the eastern parts of India. My native language is Bengali, but I am also fluent in Hindi and English.

Regarding my early studies, I have finished my early education (up to 12th class) from Kolkata in 2010. I have completed my Bachelor in Technology (B. Tech) in Engineering Physics from Indian Institute of Technology, Guwahati (IIT G) in 2014. Afterward, I have worked one year at the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) in Bangalore as a research assistant. I have completed my Master in Science (MS) in Materials Science at the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich (LMU) under the Erasmus Mundus MaMaSELF master program in 2017.

Regarding my research interest, I am highly focus on nanomaterial growth and characterization. I have worked on graphene and graphene-metal hybrid structure during my bachelor thesis. During my research at IISc, I was focused on graphene based DNA sensors. In my master work, I have worked on growth of two dimensional transition metal dichalcogenide.

Currently, I am working on orthoferrite materials prepared as thin films.
