Dr. D.K. Sharma obtained his M.Sc. and M. Phil degrees in chemistry from HP University Shimla in year 1982 and 1984 respectively and was awarded Ph.D. degree in the year 1987. Dr. Sharma started his teaching career as a Lecturer in Department of chemistry at HP University Shimla in 1986 and taught to M.Sc. and M. Phil. students of inorganic/analytic chemistry. So far, he has guided more than 25 candidates for their M. Phil. degree in chemistry and 14 candidates for Ph.D. degree in chemistry. He pursues his research activities related to the environmental and industrial analysis in terms of the development of new methodologies of for analysis of drugs and pesticide compounds in their formulated products and in residues on various substrates.

Dr. Sharma has published 110 research papers in the journals of international repute and has presented about 60 papers in various conferences/symposia. He is a Life member of various chemical societies which include, Indian Society of Analytical Scientists, Mumbai; Indian Society of Electroanalytical Chemistry, Mumbai; Indian Council of Chemists, Agra; Society of Pesticide Sciences India, New Delhi;Punjab Academy of Sciences, Patiala and Innovative Science Research Society, India. He has received research grants from funding agencies like UGC, CSIR, MOEF and BARC. Moreover, to develop human resources he has been regularly conducting workshops, seminars and delivering lectures to participants of Academic staff colleges, PG Colleges etc.
