Ich bin Sid

আমার প্রাথমিক শিক্ষা ছিল প্রকৃতি এবং রবীন্দ্রনাথ ঠাকুরের পাঠ্য নিয়ে।

Ich bin mit der gleichen Universität von Planck, Heisenberg und Schrödinger verbunden.

Ik deed onderzoek op dezelfde afdeling waar Huygens en van der Waals fundamentele wetenschap ontwikkelden.

I work in the same university where Newton and Maxwell taught.

Siddharth is an Isaac Newton Trust funded Research Fellow, German Research Foundation Fellow, St John's College Research Associate by Fellow at the University of Cambridge. He is endorsed by The Royal Society as an Exceptional Talent. He is developing a research programme on ultrafast non-dissipative nanofluidic detection of complex single molecules, such as misfolded proteins. His research is translated into commercial product through a deeptech startup, ICeNd. His learning aspiration has created a non-profit organisation, Open Academic Research.

He is also a Visiting Researcher at the Single Molecule Optics group, Leiden Institute of Physics and High Magnetic Field Laboratory, Radboud University. During his postdoctoral research at the Leiden Institute of Physics, he developed a new research line to study persistent current in resistive nanomaterials. The visiting position at Leiden enables him to continue this research.

Before moving to Leiden, he was in the Debye Institute of Nanomaterials Science working on non-dissipative single-molecule detection techniques. He did his PhD in Physics on Nanoscale Photonics from the International Max Planck Research School for Physics of Biological and Complex Systems, Göttingen, Germany. During his PhD, he has worked on single-molecule nanofluidics and light-matter interaction in nanostructures. He has an MPhil in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Birmingham, UK where he worked on AFM correlated electron microscopy technique for contact-free nanotribological characterisation of complex collagen networks of articular cartilage. Prior to that he was a junior research fellow in the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore where he developed a single-photon lithography technique to fabricate high-aspect-ratio nanostuctures for nano-mechanical sensing.

He believes, to be a scientist one cannot only be an experimentalist or a theorist; instead, combination of both creates the spark. His research interests are experimental and theoretical nanophotonics, nanofluidics, nanomechanics, and nanofabrications.

Beside a scientists, he has a keen interest on painting since his childhood.

He is also an Overleaf Advisor.
