Privat Dozent Dr. habil. Yogendra Kumar Mishra is working as Group Leader at Functional Nanomaterials, Institute for Materials Science, Kiel University, Germany, After Ph. D. in 2008 in Condensed Matter Physics from JNU New Delhi, India, he migrated to work at Functional Nanomaterials group Kiel with the prestigious Alexander von Humboldt Postdoc Fellowship award (Feb. 2009 to Feb. 2011) where he continued working till today. Recently in 2015, he finished his Habilitation degree (Venia Legendi) in Materials Science from Kiel University and currently leading a sub-group on 3D Nanomaterials at Functional Nanomaterials. In Kiel, he introduced a new fabrication technique known as 'Flame Transport Synthesis-FTS' which offers versatile (1D to 3D) nanostructuring of different metal oxides including their three-dimensional (3D) interconnected ceramic nano-networks. His main research focus is the growth of highly porous and mechanically flexible 3D interconnected materials built from ZnO nano- and microtetrapods by FTS approach which could be used as next generation 3D flexible semiconducting ceramics for advanced technologies or as sacrificial templates for fabrication of new 3D nanomaterials including hybrids. His recent research developments include growth of carbon based ultra-light Aerographite material, Aerographite-GaN hybrid 3D networks, ZnO tetrapods network based devices, ZnO networks as viral traps, SnO2 nanowire based stretchable ceramic materials for UV sensing, alongwith several other applications. He has published more than 80 papers in high rank international magazines. He is referee for more than 100 peer-reviewed magazines and also serves as an Editorial Board Member in Nature-Scientific Reports, as an Academic Editor in PLoS ONE, Associate Editor in Advanced Materials Letters (VBRI) including Advisory Board Members in several international conferences.
