About
Hello, I am Sakshi Kabra Malpani, with 10+ years of experience as a green, organic chemist and lecturer. My overarching research interests revolve around solid waste management, utilization of industrial and natural wastes in the development of heterogeneous catalysts, and their further utilization in different industrially viable organic transformations, extraction of various useful metal oxides like silica, alumina from such wastes. I favor interdisciplinary approaches to solve the aforesaid issues and have incorporated synthetic green chemistry as well as material science and conventional organic chemistry approaches in my research. Post Ph.D., I continued my research work at my workplaces in the form of different student projects at college and postgraduate levels. I also describe my interest and activities in science communication. Three of my designed catalysts have been patented on my name, my research work got published in peer-reviewed journals and books, also I presented my results at different international and national conferences. My father was a College Lecturer, so, from the early stages of my life, I want to become a teacher, saying teaching is in my DNA. Stepping to freelance consulting job, I would like to use my novel training as both an organic and environmental chemist, to investigate environmental processes on a range of temporal and spatial scales. I understand being a scientist or researcher does not mean just being successful in research. At the same time, one should be excellent in his/her interactions with the community and the students, in his/her role to lead the academic society, and in responsibilities to transform the community and society. To this end, I have been engaged in several volunteer activities, such as a volunteer in National Service Scheme and Teach For India movement, guiding and encouraging students to apply for further studies, research fellowships, competitive exams.
