Dr. Navneet Soin
Lecturer, School of Engineering, University of Bolton, United Kindom

Dr. Navneet Soin is currently a lecturer in the School of Engineering at the University of Bolton in United Kingdom. He obtained his PhD in 2012 from the University of Ulster, United Kingdom in the area of materials science, where the focus of his research was plasma growth of graphene films and their energy applications. This was followed by a research position at the University of Bolton where he led the development of piezoelectric 3-D energy harvesting textiles (Energy & Environ. Sci., 2014, 7(5), 1670-1679).

Till date, he has published over 40 research papers, three book chapters and holds two patents. His main areas of research include: plasma growth and modification of carbon thin films, plasma modification of polymers, clean energy materials (for batteries, fuel cells) and technical textiles. More recently, he has started work on triboelectric energy harvesting for enabling self-powered systems (ACS Appl. Mater. Interfaces, 2018, (accepted); Nano Energy, 2017, 40, 471-480; Nano Energy, 2016, 30, 470-480).
