Dr. Nityanand Sharma is a research fellow at the University of Huddersfield's EPSRC Centre for Innovative Manufacturing in Advanced Metrology.

Nityanand obtained his Master of Science degree in Photonics in April 2011 after successfully completing the 5-year integrated course at the Cochin University of Science and Technology, India. He completed his master's thesis project work at Aarhus University, Denmark, under the supervision of Prof. Jacob Friss Sherson. His master's thesis was titled "Off-resonant laser system for Measuring Faraday Rotation in Rubidium Vapor Cell."

Thereafter, on obtaining a research scholarship from the Austrian Institute of Technology GmbH, he moved to Vienna, Austria for his doctoral studies. His doctoral studies were carried out as part of a joint degree programme between Nanyang Technical University (NTU) in Singapore and the University of Natural Resources and Life Science in Vienna, Austria. He received his PhD in December 2015 for a thesis titled "Hydrogel Nanostructures for Plasmonic and Biosensor Applications," under the supervision of Prof. Wolfgang Knoll, Prof. Bo Liedberg, and co-supervision of Dr. Jakub Dostalek.

In 2016, he joined the NTU as a research fellow where he worked under the supervision of Prof. Liu Quan to implement an optical multivariate algorithm for the binary classification of samples for the diagnosis of ophthalmological diseases. In 2018, he moved to the Hebrew University of Jerusalem to work in the lab of Prof. Uriel Levy, where he worked on the design, simulation, fabrication, and characterization of metasurface.
