Biography

Vinay Palaparthy is working as the assistant professor in DA-IICT. He has received Ph.D degree from Indian institute of Technology Bombay (IIT Bombay). He is awarded with DST INSPIRE Fellowship for pursing Ph.D degree from Department of Science and Technology (DST). During the course of his research, he has developed the soil moisture sensors and system for the in-situ agriculture applications. Micro/Nano soil moisture sensors are developed for the agriculture applications by using carbon nanomaterials like graphene oxide, graphene quantum dots. He is widely focused on identifying the issues and problem faced in Indian agriculture and provide an IT/ECE based solutions. He has around 2 years of research experience in the field of MEMS and System design. He has 6 international journals, 5 conference papers and 4 patent filed on his work. He has one best paper award in international journal. He is a co-recipient of Millennium Alliance award for the start-up name Proximal Soilsens Technologies Pvt. Ltd, where he is a co-founder and director.

Specializations
