Saurav completed his PhD in Organic Semiconductor Physics in 2020 under the supervision of Prof Ji-Seon Kim. He joined Imperial College in 2011 as an undergraduate in Physics (MSci).

Presently, Saurav is working as a research associate in the Nanoanalysis group, led by Prof Ji-Seon Kim. Some of his projects are optimizing and characterizing narrow-band photodetectors, deducing the sensing mechanism of organic gas sensors; and characterizing bulk heterojunction blends and single-component films for photovoltaic operation.
