The Department of Mechanical Engineering is hosting a Distinguished Departmental Faculty Seminar Series to encourage discussions on diverse aspects of the subject. Experts from various fields are invited to divulge their views and help students broaden their perspectives. The talk ‘Nano sensors, Flexible energy devices and IOT’ organised as part of the series will be held on March 30, 2022 at 3.00 pm IST. Prof Mangilal Agarwal, Director of Integrated Nanosystems Development Institute (INDI)-IUPUI is the distinguished speaker of the event. The talk will focus on Identification of volatile organic compound biomarkers in breath, development of integrated nanosensor systems and electrospinning epoxy/carbon nanotubes on carbon reinforced polymers for structural applications.

Speaker’s Profile

Prof Mangilal Agarwal is a full-time professor in the Department of Mechanical and Energy Engineering, Purdue University, Indiana, USA. He has an overarching vision to become an innovative leader in high-quality research and serve industry and government agencies in Indianapolis, the state of Indiana, and beyond.

Prof Agarwal has an array of interdisciplinary research projects at IUPUI involving big data, data analytics, machine learning, analytical chemistry, and mechanical engineering. Specifically, his research consists of canine-inspired chemometric analysis of volatile organic compound (VOC) biomarkers, developing integrated nanosensor arrays that detect VOC biomarkers sensitively or selectively, and enhancing carbon reinforced materials through electrospinning epoxy/carbon nanotube composite nanofibers.

Over the years Prof Agarwal’s research has been well received and funded through numerous grants from the National Science Foundation (NSF), National Institute of Health (NIH), Department of Defense (DoD) and the industry.

Prof Agarwal has previously served as the Associate Director for Research and Development for the IUPUI Office of the Vice Chancellors for research and is currently the Director of Integrated Nanosystems Development Institute (INDI) at IUPUI, which strives to advance nanotechnology research, education, and outreach.
