Dr Vikaramjeet Singh profile picture
  • Research Fellow in metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) for energy-efficient
  • Dept of Mechanical Engineering
  • Faculty of Engineering Science

In approximately 6 years since my PhD, I have developed an excellent publication record with 44 publications (15 as 1st author and 6 as corresponding author), all in international reputed journals. I have the experience on working and leading (includes managing work reports, meetings and related documents) two major European Research Council (ERC) and two Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC) funded projects. I have been consistently recognized for high-quality research through awards and grants. During my PhD, twice I was awarded with the Director Scholarship for Excellent student in 2012 and 2013.Together with Professor Sun Lixin of Shenyang Pharmaceutical University, China, I was a co-recipient of Natural Science Foundation of China (81573392) grant(value:600k RMB, ca. £66k). In China-UK Newton Early Career Workshop 2016, my two projects were selected and awarded. I secured a grant in collaboration with SOLIEL Synchrotron facility in France to study the distribution and interaction of metallic nanoparticles inside MOFs. 

Research Themes
Research Summary

My research in nanoengineering system lab focuses on the design and development of robust surfaces for phase change applications (condensation, anti-icing and anti-fouling) and metal/covalent-organic frameworks (MOFs/COFs) based membranes for desalination and purification. The excellent research support and facilities in UCL Mechanical Engineering and multidisciplinary nature of my group helped me achieving several milestones including publications, GB patent filing and submission/preparation of several proposals.
Currently, I am extending these findings and exploiting exceptional MOF/COFs structures to develop:  i) surface that can hold the lubricant permanently to produce robust liquid infused slippery surface. ii) a solution to the unwanted crystal formation on surfaces via nanoengineering of COF pores including theoretical understanding using AB initio molecular simulations and iii) MOF-Nylon membranes for desalination in collaboration with Prof. Hans-Jürgen Butt’s team (MPIP, Germany).
