Since 2015, Dr. Sharma, an environmental chemist and pioneer in ferrate research, has published 11 peer-reviewed papers with Chinese collaborators. He recently returned from a 2-week trip where he presented his current research findings at two international conferences and universities across China in Nanjing, Xi’an, Wuhan, Changsha, Xiamen, Guangzhou, and Urumqi.

As part of his fellowship, he will conduct research with Chinese collaborators and continue to present research findings throughout the country during the coming year.
