“Simply, I was just doing my job and this is the result of it” – Kiranmai Uppuluri, one of our young researchers, said modestly about her first chapter published in the book.

But it’s Women in Science Day today, so we are delighted to have this young researcher’s achievement on show!

Who is Kiran?

In the bustling city of Delhi, amidst the academic enthusiasm of its prestigious university, Kiran discovered her passion for science. With a keen intellect and an insatiable curiosity, she delved into Physical Sciences, earning a Bachelor of Science degree from Delhi University.

She became a Marie Skłodowska Curie Scholar in the EU Project AQUASENSE at the ŁukasiewiczInstitute of Microelectronics and Photonics, where she dedicated herself to research to revolutionize pH sensing technology. The project’s focus on fabricating pH sensors offered a promising alternative to the traditional glass electrodes, which were cumbersome and polluting.

All of the researchers who participated in this project have contributed to the book.

The book discusses sensing technologies and recent advances in materials and sensors for water quality monitoring. It covers techniques like IoT, communication systems, and advanced sensor deployment for online monitoring.

Kiran’s chapter is based on the topic of pH, dissolved oxygen, electrical conductivity, and temperature sensors for water quality monitoring. It is Sensing Technologies for Real-Time Monitoring of Water Quality, where you can read it! All the researchers involved in the Aquasense project have contributed to the book.

The book is written for students and practitioners/researchers in water quality management.

“As a proud contributor to the AQUASENSE project, this achievement marks a significant milestone in my journey in the field of scientific research.”

The book, a culmination of efforts within the AQUASENSE project and later completed and published during the TESLA project, dives into crucial topics surrounding water quality monitoring. You can find it on platforms such as the main websites of Wiley, Amazon, eBay, and even Empik! To learn more about the book: https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/book/10.1002/9781119775843″

Kiranmai is currently working in TESLA – Transient Electronics for Sustainable ICT in DigitaL Agriculture, funded by CHIST-ERA.

The project aims to create environmentally sustainable electronics to support the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals. It focuses on developing high-performance green electronics using sustainable materials and processes for use in the energy digital agriculture sector.

Outside of the lab, Kiran finds solace and inspiration in a variety of hobbies. From practicing yoga to dancing, singing, and reading, she finds joy in the balance between intellectual pursuits and creative expression.  If you want a reminder of what other passions Kiran has, read the interview that was in our interview some time ago.
