About Aastha

Aastha holds a Bachelor of Technology from Thapar Institute of Engineering and Technology, Patiala, where she developed a bacterial colony counting web-link. During her internship in the State Forensic Science Laboratory, Lucknow, she analysed the impact physiological factors on serological exhibits. She pursued her Master of Technology in Biotechnology with specialization in Medicine and Nano-biotechnology from Indian Institute of Technology, Mandi. Her research interest lies in using nanomaterials for biological applications, which is reflected by her masters work that shows how nanomaterials can be used to remote regulate and enhance thermal stability of enzyme. In her PhD she will be focusing on theranostic application i.e. usage of nanoparticles for bio-imaging and drug delivery.

Single-nanoparticle upconversion nanolasers for probing biological systems

Miniaturized or nanoparticle-based lasers are emerging as promising candidates for biological sensing and imaging, particularly in in-vivo settings. We aim to harness the engineered single-nanoparticle upconverting nano-lasers to sense, image and control biological functions.
