She also worked as Research Associate at the Institute for Studies in Industrial Development (ISID), ICSSR, New Delhi, during (2013-2016), and as Research Assistant at the National Institute of Science Technology and Development Studies (NISTADS), CSIR, New Delhi, during (2009-2012). During her tenure at both ISID and NISTADS, she got the opportunities to assist research projects funded by World Health Organization (WHO, India), Public Health Foundation of India (PHFI), United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), National Health Systems Resource Centre (NHSRC). She has obtained her PhD degree from the Centre for studies in Science Policy, Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi. All these experiences enabled her to study and learn different aspects of science policy.

Research Interests:

Nidhi’s research interest revolves around the discipline of Science Technology and Innovation Studies to understand the social dynamics of technologies specifically the healthcare and biomedical technologies. The major focus of her research is to develop a better understanding of interface between science, technology and society in order to drive the Technological Innovations towards the needs through effective mobilization of the resources as well as optimal utilization of innovation system building activities.

Her present work “Emerging Biomedical Innovation System and its Issues and challenges” facilitates the contribution towards the development of Socially Responsible Innovation System Framework. This helps in analyzing the development and diffusion of biomedical innovations and their effective use in clinical practices for addressing the country’s specific needs.

Background:

Gautam is currently working as a DST Postdoctoral Policy Fellow with the DST- Centre for Policy Research at the Indian Institute of Science. 

He has completed an integrated MPhil-PhD from the Centre for Studies in Science Technology and Innovation Policy, Central University of Gujarat in 2020. His PhD and MPhil research has focused on the areas of ‘grassroots’ innovations in the Indian context. In his PhD study, he explored the designing of grassroots innovations in three stages of idea generation, experimentation, and implementation. Similarly, his MPhil project focused on the role of intellectual property rights in protecting informal sector grassroots innovations in India.

Research interests:

Gautam has academic training in the field of Science Technology and Innovation (STI) Policy studies and has used qualitative research methods to engage with various issues related to STI in India.

His research interest lies in the areas of informal innovations specifically those which are developed by people or groups working outside the rigid structures of formal science and technology institutions. He is keen on studying the networking and collaboration by innovators working in informal settings in India and their knowledge sharing practices within and outside their community.
