Manoj graduated from University of Maryland, College Park in 2018 with a Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering and joined the Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering Department of Lehigh University for doctoral studies. As a doctoral student in the Baltrusaitis Group, Manoj focuses on sustainable nutrient recovery from waste water. This work involves the synthesis of nanoparticles, characterization via spectroscopy, and kinetic studies.

Manoj’s undergraduate research involved the study of superconformal electrodeposition of cobalt and copper through silicon vias (TSVs) on a micron-scale. This work was done at the National Institute of Standards and Technology with the Functional Nanostructured Materials Group under the mentorship of Dr. Daniel Josell.

Outside of the laboratory, Manoj likes to read, hike, cook, and travel.
