Dr. Alpesh Khushalchand Shukla, Founder

ZoNexus was founded by Dr. Alpesh Khushalchand Shukla. Dr. Shukla's research interests include study of structure and phase transformations in lithium- ion battery materials using electron probe-based materials characterization techniques such as aberration-corrected scanning transmission electron microscopy (STEM) and Electron Energy Loss Spectroscopy (EELS). In 2019, he started developing electron microscopy tools that address challenges in performing in situ studies on battery materials.. Before entering the field of energy materials in 2008, his research was mostly focused on physical metallurgy of alloys such as aluminum and steel. Dr. Shukla obtained his Ph.D degree in Materials Engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Troy, NY in 2007 under the supervision of Prof. William A “Bud” Baeslack III.
