Dr. Nitin Pawar

I have joined as a Postdoctoral fellow (NPDF) on a project titled “Solution co-crystallization of Nutraceutical: Process design and development with scale-up”. My focus is on developing a scalable process for co-crystallization of nutraceutical considering experimental and modeling approach. Previously, I have worked in the field of antisolvent crystallization of pharmaceutically relevant compounds.
I love travelling, visiting new places and watching cricket in my free time.
