Rohan Borah grew up in front of the Chemistry department of the science college in his hometown where he became fond of Chemistry. He has been a doctoral research fellow at Victoria university of Wellington since 2017 and has recently moved to continue his research at the University of Newcastle. Previously, he did his Master's degree from Tezpur University, Tezpur, India in Chemical Sciences as the Gold medalist. Before that, Rohan completed his Bachelor's with Honours in Chemistry from Hindu College, University of Delhi.
Rohan's research experience and interests came from the internship programs he underwent at the Jawaharlal Nehru Centre for Advanced Scientific Research (JNCASR), Bangalore.
He had an awesome learning experience at the Solid State and Inorganic Chemistry Lab, NCU under Dr. S. C. Peter. where he worked on nano-materials for applications in the energy sector among some other stuff and got a bit of his research published.
Rohan believes when the world will get over the illusion of money, energy in all of its forms will become the new currency. Rohan wants to dedicate his research to the development of novel materials for application in energy sector, specifically in electrochemical energy storage. He's currently working on developing a low cost electrolyte for redox flow batteries. Apart from this he's interested in challenges in electrochemistry, in general.
"When I'm not doing science, I spend my time with music, poetry and food."
