“Chemical synthesis is uniquely positioned at the heart of chemistry, the central science, and its impact on our lives and society is all pervasive” - Elias James Corey.

Dr. Mahesh Kumar Ravva is an 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, electronic structure methods use as a tool to investigate the electronic properties of novel functional materials. His research activities directed towards the design and development of novel molecules and materials for organic electronic devices. Besides, he also studies 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), the USA to do his postdoctoral work (2013-2016). Then he joined the 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 to joining 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 Ph.D. from the Chemistry Department, National University of Singapore (NUS) in (2008-2012). Prior to 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 is working as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Chemistry, SRM University-AP Amaravati.

Prior to joining SRM University, Amaravati, he held numerous academic and industrial positions where he gained the much-needed expertise to establish an academic career in India. He was at the University of California Davis, USA (Sept 2010 to Jun 2015 & May 2016 to July 2018) and a group leader in Clean Diesel Technology Inc., a catalyst industry located in Los Angeles (Jul 2015 to April 2016). He received his M.Sc. degree in Chemistry from the Andhra University, India in 2004. He then completed his Ph.D. from the Chemistry Department, Indian Institute of Technology Madras (2004 to 2010).

His area of research emphasizes current global needs associated with Energy storage/conversion and Environment protection by exploring the structural and thermodynamic factors governing their physical properties and thereby designing efficient and advanced functional metal oxides. His main focus will be on development and thermochemical studies of functional metal oxides related to (i) Emission control catalysts, (ii) Battery electrode materials, (iii) Solid ionic conductors and (iv) Ultra high-temperature ceramics for aerospace application. The experimental thermochemical parameters are measured using state-of-the-art high temperature solution calorimeters. These parameters will help in formulating new chemistries/materials by understanding the stability, compatibility and the factors governing the performance enhancement.
