Hi! I’m Shankar Dutt.


I am a doctoral student at Research School of Physics and Engineering, Australian National University.


Born in India in March,97, I have a passion for research in physics and material science. I have both the skill set and professional background necessary to dive deep into the never-ending research world. Currently, I am a Doctoral Student at Department of Electronic Materials Engineering, Research School of Physics and Engineering, Australian National University. I am doing my Ph.D. under the guidance of Prof. Patrick Kluth. I am working on the development of novel composite nanopore membranes.


Using high-energy ion irradiation and chemical etching provides an industrially compatible technology for the fabrication of extremely small nano-pores in a variety of materials. Combining this technology with 2D materials such as Graphene or ultra-thin film deposition enables the fabrication of nanopore membranes with desired functionalities that can be used in medical and biological sensors, ultrafiltration and lab-on-the-chip applications.


I wish to continue my research in Physics with a belief that I can make a significant contribution to my field. Browse my site to see all that I have to offer. 



You are like a younger brother to me. You are a very dedicated researcher. We have worked on a research proposal together. I can see the zeal in you to achieve your aspired goals. Your love towards Physics is praiseworthy. Apart from research, you are a person with a golden heart and you know how to respect another human entity. I wish  you success in life.

"Ingenious, inquisitive and intelligent are the three I's that completely define you. It's rare to meet people who are masters in anything they wish to do and that's who you are. Along with brilliance, you have got a heart as good as your brain. A down to earth person who is always ready to guide and help others in every possible way. No doubt its tough to attain the first position but at the same time it's very hard to maintain it and stay at the top. The consistency to do hard work has always been a major point to learn from you. You have got just the right passion and potential to be a great researcher. I appreciate your work on this website.  I wish that you keep lighting people as you always do"

"I met Shankar Dutt during an internship at Ecole Polytechnique, where he too had gone for a summer internship program in experimental physics. At the very first instance, he came across as a very friendly and inclusive individual. Gradually, it turned out that he is also quite humorous and great company to have around. During that time and eventually, in the time that I have known him, I have seen him fulfil each new challenge with confidence yielding extremely good results. I have always found him valuing people and his relationships. His enthusiasm in any field is closely followed by a sense of responsibility. In every sense, he's a wonderful team-player and an extraordinary friend to have in your life"

RADHIKA GUPTA, Ecole Polytechnique

"You are one of the most dedicated students of physics I have come across. Your interest in physics and a zeal towards research is truly inspiring. Rarely, such students are seen, who are capable of making a contribution to the mankind, and You are one of the kind. I wish that your curiosity never gets satisfied and you keeps adding to the philosophy of nature, called physics."



I would love to hear from you
