Shubham Tanwar graduated with B.Sc. in Physics from Ramjas College, University of Delhi, India in 2016, and with M.Sc. Physics from Indian Institute of Technology Bombay, India in 2018. Trained as a physicist, he found his way through electronics and instrumentation to explore different domains of experimental physics like optics and photonics, nanoscience, material science, particle physics and also accelerator physics. His master’s thesis was on indigenously developing new experimental setups for deposition and optoelectrical characterization of photonics relevant materials. After his master’s degree, he worked as a research intern at J-PARC, Japan for testing and tuning of the ultra-slow muon beamline, and then later joined IIT-Bombay as a Junior Research Fellow to work on testing and designing of RF front-end electronics for particle detector systems.
Currently, he is a Marie Skłodowska Curie Fellow working in the Nanoscale Bioelectrical Characterization group of Prof. Gabriel Gomila at Institute of Bioengineering of Catalonia IBEC Barcelona; and enrolled as a Ph.D. student in Biomedicine at the Faculty of Physics, University of Barcelona, Spain. His Ph.D. work involves Nanoscale Electrical Characterization of Organic Electronic Biosensors by in-liquid Electrostatic Force Microscopy.
