    Personal profile


    Payal joined the Chemical Engineering and Applied Chemistry group at Aston in May 2019 as a Research Associate. She is working on the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) program to support the delivery of a project called Enabling Technologies and Innovation Competencies Challenge (ETICC). The project is linked between Aston Institute of Materials Research (AIMR) and Aston Institute of Photonics Technology. Her role involves material based business assist with local Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs). 

    Research Interests

    Polymer synthesis

    Supercritical carbon dioxide technology

    Biopolymers and branched polymers

    Surfactants and self-assembly


    Material characterization



    Having received Five Years Integrated M.Sc Chemistry degree from Sardar Vallabhbhai National Institute of Technology, Surat, Gujarat, India in 2015. Payal embarked EU-funded cotutelle PhD programme (SINCHEM, framework agreement N°2013-0037) between University of Nottingham, UK and ENSCM, France in collaboration with academic (MPIP, Mainz, Germany) and an industrial partner (Croda, Cowick, UK) (2015-2018).
