Materials Post-Doctoral Research Associate
Prince’s research interests include materials for nuclear industry, radiation-matter interactions, and glasses/ceramics for nuclear waste immobilisation. After completing a bachelor’s in physics and a master’s in nuclear science from University of Delhi, India, he joined a PhD programme at Sheffield Hallam University in 2016. He studied radiation effects/damage in high-level nuclear waste glasses using advanced spectroscopic techniques during his PhD.
Prince, in February 2021, joined Bangor University’s Nuclear Future Institute as a Post-Doctoral Research Associate in Functional Materials for Radiation Hard Sensors in the Materials for Nuclear and Extreme Environments group. This project includes materials development for sensor systems relevant to nuclear applications.
He is an ardent supporter of Nuclear ENERGY. He was the leader of the Ambassador group of Doctoral Alliance-ENERGY, University Alliance, UK. He was a PGR student representative and a PGR ethics reviewer at Sheffield Hallam Research Ethics Committee. He is involved with various outreach programs and works closely with the University of Manchester, University of Liverpool, Dalton Nuclear Institute, within UK and with Inter-University Accelerator Research centre, India. He is also the recipient of The ROY G Post Foundation Scholarship at Graduate level, Waste Management Symposium-2020.
