Chaman Gupta

Chaman Gupta earned his Bachelor’s in Technology (BTech Hons) from the Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur in 2019. During his undergraduate years, he conducted research in Dr. S.K. Pal’s laboratory, focusing on a unique Underwater Friction Stir Welding technique (UFSW) applied to dissimilar metals. He further extended his research while working as a Visiting Researcher at the Warwick Manufacturing Group alongside Dr. Michael Auinger, where he developed a mathematical model for corrosion in UFSW joints. In his senior year, Chaman worked on his Bachelor’s Thesis with Dr. S. Das, concentrating on developing innovative cathode and anode materials for Li-ion batteries.

Driven by his passion for research, Chaman pursued his Master’s degree in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Washington. Further, he started his Ph.D. in the Materials Science and Engineering Department in 2021. Under the mentorship of Dr. Peter Pauzauskie, Chaman’s research is centered on synthesizing group-IV nanodiamonds from doped carbon aerogel precursors using high-pressure and high-temperature conditions through diamond anvil cells.
