Dr. Avinash Rokade is currently associated with SCNN. He is working as a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow at Symbiosis Centre for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (SCNN), Symbiosis International (Deemed University), Lavale Campus, India.

Dr. Avinash has completed two Master's Degrees (M.Sc. in 2012 and M.Phil. in 2014). He has gained expertise in nanomaterial synthesis by the chemical route and their application for photocatalytic water splitting for hydrogen gas evolution. He was awarded NREF (National Renewable Energy Fellowship) of MNRE, Govt. of India to pursue a Ph. D. at the School of Energy Studies, Savitribai Phule Pune University, from 2014 to 2018. He has been awarded a Ph. D. in physics from the Department of Physics, Savitribai Phule Pune University, Pune, in 2018. He has published more than 40 research articles and 2 book chapters in peer reviewed journals. He was awarded as a Savitribai Phule Pune University Postdoctoral Fellow (SPPU-PDF) at the Department of Physics, Savitribai Phule Pune University, Pune.

He is working in the field of optoelectronic devices, flexible polymers, optical and electrochemical biosensors for healthcare and environmental applications, solar energy harvesting, and battery, supercapacitor energy storage, mainly to improve device performance/ efficiency with the help of 1D, 2D, and 3D nanostructures and investigation of their interfacial properties via electrochemical impedance spectroscopy, cyclic voltammetry, Chrono methods, and Mott-Schottky analysis for photo-generated charge transfer dynamics, band alignment, and band engineering. He is expertise in the novel nanomaterial synthesis, tuning their properties as per the desired application along with the interpretation of the characterization data will be highly useful for the development of the novel diagnostic tools such as biosensors, routine blood, urine monitoring devices etc.

He collaborates with a diverse group of researchers from academia and industry across the world to conduct interdisciplinary research. His goal is to support societies in their transition from a traditional energy future to a better human health with sustainable energy one, and provide information and advice on use of renewable energy, best practices, and strengthening green innovative technology for development healthy human environment.
