Ajit Khosla Receives PhD and Dean's Convocation Medal
A pioneer in the field, Dr. Ajit Khosla has developed novel micropatternable multifunctional nanocomposite materials for nano and micro systems applications.
His dissertation work has resulted in two full patent applications and two invited journal papers, including The Journal of Electronic Testing: Theory and Applications. Furthermore, his work has resulted in one invited book chapter, and an extremely impressive conference record that includes three invited papers as first author and over 60 further in print academic contributions. His work published in Materials Letters has been cited over 28 times in the last 3 years.
Dr. Khosla took this research from its initial concepts and expanded it to a number of areas, including magnetic polymers, and helped forged collaborations with researchers across the university and with multiple industrial partners globally. His work has received so much attention that he was invited to sit on the Executive Committee and Program Committee for two major conferences — The Sensor Division of Electro-chemical Society, and the Smart Structures and Materials-NDE.
An avid mentor and believer in community, Dr. Khosla has mentored various undergraduate and graduate students within Applied Sciences. Dr Khosla plans to start a company and later pursue his career in academia.
Dr. Khosla believes that credit to all his success goes to his supervisor Dr. Bonnie Gray. He is thankful for her support and the freedom she gave him to work; which brought the best out of him.
On behalf of SFU, we congratulate Dr. Khosla on his outstanding achievements which are being recognized by his being awarded the Dean of Graduate Studies Convocation Medal as one of SFU's most outstanding graduate student from the Faculty of Applied Sciences.
