Diwakar Padalia obtained his Ph.D. in 2011 from G.B.Pant University of Agriculture & Technology, Pantnagar, India. His research interest is devoted on the development
of fine ceramics, magnetic materials and polymer nanocomposite materials.
Presently, he is engaged in synthesis and characterization of Dielectric
polymer nanocomposites for capacitor applications and development of soft magnetic
polymer nanocomposites for computer storage devices.
Since 2008, he has taught many courses to Science and Engineering students
at GBPUAT, DV, GITM and KRMU. In addition to conventional teaching, he is also
involved in development of low cost dielectric sample holder for LCR meters
He enjoys and encourages creative interdisciplinary research proposals. He
is very passionate about research and development of advanced nanomaterials.
His main goals are:
- Better understanding of learning process –to facilitate continuous improvement
in teaching. Not a search for the “perfect pedagogy” which does
- Contribute in the transformation of Science and Engineering
education by bringing a higher focus on laboratory culture.
- Focus on improved learning by all students –“Average” as well
as “High performer”.
- Simplification of courses: make course topic as simple as
possible but no simpler.
- Encourage the inter-disciplinary research.
- Focus on applications of the class room topics appear in daily
life and how breakthroughs in subject shape the world view of
- Encourage entrepreneurship among students.
- Leverage the potential of nano-science to enhance quality
of engineering materials.
