Early Academic Pursuits

Dr. Rupendra Kumar Sharma embarked on his academic journey with a Master’s degree in Physics from C. C. S. University, Meerut, India, completed in 2005. He subsequently pursued a Ph.D. in Electronics at the University of Delhi, India, under the mentorship of Prof. Mridula Gupta. His doctoral research, completed in March 2010, focused on the “Two-dimensional analytical modeling and simulation of gate misalignment effect in fully depleted double gate MOSFET.” This foundational work laid the groundwork for his future contributions to semiconductor device modeling and simulation.

Professional Endeavors

Dr. Sharma’s professional career is marked by a diverse range of roles in both academia and industry. He is currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrotechnology at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Czech Technical University in Prague, where he has been since December 2021. His recent research involves the experimental preparation of materials using Pulse Laser Deposition (PLD) for advanced silicon solar cell technology. Before this, he served as a Postdoctoral Fellow at the same institution, working on developing new technology for selective contacts to silicon absorbers based on silicon oxide passivation and metal oxides. From 2018 to 2020, Dr. Sharma was the Executive Director at OYO Hotels Netherlands B.V., managing hospitality activities in Amsterdam and surrounding areas. Prior to that, he was the Managing Director at Indo Western s.r.o., focusing on education consultancy and professional training.
