About the Author
Bhim Prasad Kafle was born in Nepal in 1975 and received an MSc. in Physical Chemistry from Tribhuvan University, Nepal in 1998. He also received an MSc. degree in Solar Energy and Environmental Physics from Ben-Gurion University of Negev, Israel in 2004 where he investigated the effect of electrical current on the diffusion process of dopant on thin solid films. He was awarded with a PhD from Graduate University for Advanced Studies, Japan in Physics in 2008. He then pursued his research as a postdoctoral fellow on reaction dynamics of metal and carbon cluster at Weizmann Institute of Science, Israel. During this period he was supported with UNESCO/ISRAEL co-sponsored Fellowship (2009 - 2011) in Israel.Dr. Kafle has been working as assistant professor since November 2011 at the Department of Chemical Science and Chemical Engineering, Kathmandu University, Nepal. He has published about 20 scientific articles in peer reviewed journals in both fundamental physics (particle physics) and material science. His current research interest is the synthesis of nanomaterial-based devices for solar energy harvesting.Dr. Kafle is a lifelong member of Chemical Society of Nepal and was awarded with The World Academy of Science Award (TWAS) (Conferred in 2012) by TWAS Foundation, Italy.
