Vaibhav Trivedi

Link to student’s project: IMURA0988

Vaibhav Trivedi completed his bachelor’s in petroleum engineering from the University of Petroleum and Energy Studies, Dehradun in the year 2016 and master’s in chemical engineering from IIT Gandhinagar in 2019. His research work is modelled around finding efficient solutions to environmental issues. His master’s thesis focused on “CO2 Capture by Gas Hydrates” as a solution to one of the major environmental problems faced by mankind today. His research work has been published in the Journal of Crystal Growth. Vaibhav has also worked as a Junior Research fellow after his successful completion of master’s at IIT Gandhinagar on the project titled “Micronization and Encapsulation of Energetic Molecules by Expansion of CO2 Expanded Liquid Solutions”. Prior to joining IITB-Monash Research Academy in December 2021, he was a part of the Korea Center of Artificial Photosynthesis, Seoul, South Korea. He has experience in the field of conversion of CO2 and has presented his work on photoelectrochemical conversion of CO2 into liquid fuels in conferences like APC (Asian photochemistry conference) and KCS (Korean Chemical Society). At IITB-Monash Research Academy, he will be working under the supervision of Prof. Arnab Dutta, Prof. Vikram Vishal from IITB and Prof. Sankar Bhattacharya from Monash University on the project titled “Designing catalyst- containing industry-ready reactor for facile CO2 to CO conversion”. He has always aspired to contribute to the world of science and research by designing technologies and methods to combat the increasing carbon emission. Apart from research and studies, he has a keen interest in playing cricket and chess.
