Arti Srivastava completed her M.S. degree in chemistry at the Department of Chemistry, University of Allahabad, Allahabad, India, in 2000. She has excellent academic career and topped in the M.S. final examination (physical chemistry) in 2000. She had served as a Project Fellow in the UGC project and Research Associate of CSIR, New Delhi, India, under Professor Kunj Behari, Ex-head, Department of Chemistry, University of Allahabad, Allahabad, India. Her scheme on the area of RAFT polymerization of amino acid based vinyl monomers was given a financial assistance of Rs. 19,92,000 under Young Scientist Scheme of DST, New Delhi, in 2008, and she executed this scheme with Dr. Rajesh Kumar, Department of Chemistry, Faculty of Science, Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi, India. She published six research papers in international journals under this scheme. She has performed several polymerization reactions using redox couple, ATRP, and RAFT reagents during her postdoctoral studies. This year, her work has been well recognized worldwide, on which she got one Indian patent (patent no. 247798). Meanwhile, she joined the Department of Chemistry, Banasthali University, Vanasthali, India, as a Lecturer on September 21, 2008. Srivastava has published eighteen research papers and communicated one so far in the renowned international journals. She has presented more than two dozen research papers in conferences and symposia. Since July 28, 2011, she has been working as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Chemistry, Guru Ghasidas Vishwavidyalaya, Bilaspur, India. Her current research focuses on the synthesis of water soluble polymeric hydrogels based upon newly synthesized monomers using the controlled living radical polymerization process, either by ATRP or RAFT methodology.
