Dr Mahesh Kumar Ravva is assistant professor in the department of chemistry at SRM University- AP, Amaravati. He was at the Georgia Institute of Technology (2013-2014) and at the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (2014-2017). He received his Master of Science degree (in 2008) Chemical Sciences from Pondicherry University and his Ph.D. degree in Chemistry from the University of Madras in 2013.

His research work mainly focuses on computational materials science, that is, I use electronic structure methods as a tool to investigate the electronic properties of novel functional materials. My research activities directed towards the design and development of novel molecules and materials for organic electronic devices. Besides, I am also studying the nature of weak interactions in prototype molecular systems to determine their strength.

Dr.Nimai Mishra obtained his M.Sc. in Chemistry (in 2008) from Indian Institute of Technology-Madras (IIT-M), India. Then he went to National University of Singapore (NUS), Singapore to pursue his doctoral work and awarded the Ph.D. degree in 2013. Soon after his Ph.D. from NUS, Singapore he moved to Center for Integrated Nanotechnologies (CINT) at Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL),USA to do his postdoctoral work (2013-2016). Then he joined Italian Institute of Technology (IIT)-Genova, Italy (2016-2017) for his second postdoctoral work.

From 2017, Dr. Mishra is working as an Assistant Professor at the Department of Chemistry, SRM University-AP, Amaravati.

His board area of interest is Nanochemistry, to be specific his research areas include a) High-temperature colloidal synthesis of different semiconductor nanocrystals. b) Device fabrication: optoelectronic applications (Light emitting diodes, Solar cell, Photodetector) and for thermoelectric (TE) measurements) Perovskite nanocrystals synthesis and their shape control.

Dr. Sabyasachi Chakrabortty is now working as an Assistant Professor in Department of Chemistry, SRM University-AP Amaravati.

Prior joining to SRM, he was working as Group Leader at University of Ulm and Max-Planck-Institute for Polymer Research, Germany (2014-2017).

He received his M.Sc. degree in Chemistry from the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Madras, India in 2008. Then he completed his PhD from Chemistry Department, National University of Singapore (NUS) in (2008-2012). Prior working in Germany, he continued his first Post-Doctoral research stint in NUS (2012-2014).

His research mainly focuses on collective understanding, tailoring and controlling the interfaces between biological systems and inorganic nanocrystals for various applications. Broadly they include – (i) Synthesis of Metal-Semiconductor Hybrid Nanomaterials for Multi-modal Functionalities, (ii) Understanding the Fundamentals of Controlled Assembly with Inorganic Nanocrystals, i.e., Polymerizations at Mesoscale, (iii) Functional Nanomaterials for Theranostic Applications and (iv) Sensing Bio-relevant Entities with Nano-carbon materials.

Dr. Pardha Saradhi Maram received Ph.D. in Solid State Chemistry from the Dept. of Chemistry, Indian Institute of Technology Madras (in 2009), India. After, postdoctoral work with Prof. Alexandra Navrotsky (pioneer in experimental thermochemistry) at the University of California Davis (2010-2015; 2016-2018) moved to a catalyst industry (Clean Diesel Technology Inc., Los Angeles, CA; 2015-2016) where he headed diesel oxidation catalyst division and developed novel mixed metal oxides based emission control two-way catalysts free from precious metals (Platinum, Palladium). Later, he joined as the faculty in Chemistry at SRM University-AP, Amaravati.

His research interests have centered about Environment protection and Energy conversion relating microscopic features of structure and bonding to macroscopic thermodynamic behaviour in complex functional materials. The main technical area of his laboratory is developed cathode materials for Li-ion and beyond Li-ion batteries, mixed metal oxide catalysts for two-way and three-way emission control systems and high-temperature reaction calorimetry and aerodynamic levitation coupled with continuous wave CO2 laser to address the structure-energy-property systematics of ultra-high temperature ceramic materials related to aerospace re-entry heat shields and thermal barrier coating applications.
