    About the Speaker

    Dr Patchigolla joined Cranfield University in 2009 as Lecturer in 2012, Senior Lecturer in 2017 and Reader in 2020. During this period he is involved in the demonstration of low-temperature heat storage (rock bed), thermal driven absorption chiller (Li-Br), combustion (fluidized, pulverized), gasification (fixed, fluidized), the capture of CO2 (Chemical/Calcium looping) and CO2 pipeline and shipping transport facilities, evaluating the effects on component durability and gas cleaning requirements of systems using a wide range of solid fuels. These include biomasses, waste and sewage sludge as well as coal either alone or in different co-fired combinations and supervision of research activities using the Pilot Scale Advanced Capture (PACT) facilities.

  • Nanoparticles as drug delivery systems – what can cell biology tell us? April 7, 2022

    international lecture series

    Guest lectures are a great opportunity for students to learn what the rest of the world thinks/researches. As a part of the International Lecture Series, The Office of International Relations and Higher Studies invites Prof Jeremy Simpson from University College, Dublin to engage the students on the topic “Nanoparticles as drug delivery systems – what can cell biology tell us?”

    Nanotechnology advancements have resulted in the creation of related fields such as nanoparticle synthesis and biomedical applications. Patients and doctors alike have been given hope by nanotechnology-driven advancements in treating complicated medical problems.

    Join this informative lecture on April 08, 2022, at 3.00 pm and get enlightened!

    About the Speaker

    Jeremy Simpson carried out his PhD work at the University of Warwick (UK), working on the trafficking of protein toxins in mammalian cells under the supervision of Profs. Mike Lord and Lynne Roberts. After post-doctoral work at the Scripps Research Institute in San Diego (USA) in the lab of Dr Bill Balch and the ICRF in London (UK) in the lab of Dr Rainer Pepperkok, he was awarded a long term EMBO fellowship allowing him to move to the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) in Heidelberg (Germany). For over 9 years he worked at EMBL developing and applying novel high-throughput imaging approaches to study protein localisation and membrane traffic. In 2008 he was appointed as Full Professor of Cell Biology at University College Dublin, Ireland. His lab currently applies high-throughput imaging technologies to study various membrane trafficking pathways in the cell, a number of human diseases associated with defects in the endomembrane system, and the molecular basis of how synthetic nanoparticles enter cells and induce toxicity. His lab also has expertise in the growth and analysis of 3D cell models, including spheroids and organoids, and their imaging and analysis using high-content screening microscopy. His lab also develops novel software tools and approaches for image analysis. He has authored 120 peer-reviewed articles, including articles in Nature Cell Biology and Nature Methods, and a number of book chapters. He is a Fellow of the UCD Conway Institute and runs the UCD Cell Screening Laboratory (www.ucd.ie/hcs). Additional academic roles within UCD have included Head of Subject for the Cell and Molecular Biology Programme, Head of the School of Biology and Environmental Science, and Vice-Principal (International) of the UCD College of Science. In September 2021 he took up the role of College Principal and Dean of Science for the UCD College of Science.

  • Metamaterials and their applications: Distinguished Lecture Series March 23, 2022

    metamaterials applications

    The Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering is hosting the first segment of the ECE Department Distinguished Lecture Series on March 24, 2022, from 12.00 pm to 01.00 pm IST. Prof Achanta Venugopal, Director, CSIR-NPL is the distinguished speaker of the event. He will be delivering a talk on the topic “Metamaterials and their Applications”.

    Abstract of the Talk

    Metamaterials are designed materials with unique properties that may not exist in naturally available materials. These are designed with sub-wavelength size components. In this talk, after briefly introducing metamaterials, the speaker will discuss on a few metal-dielectric and all dielectric metamaterials and their applications in wide-ranging areas covering stealth, single-photon emitters, reusable biosensors among others.

    Speaker’s Profile

    Venu Gopal Achanta obtained his PhD in Physics from Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, Mumbai and PhD in Electronics from Tokyo University, Tokyo, Japan. He is currently the Director of CSIR-National Physical Laboratory, Delhi. He is on lien from Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, Mumbai where he is a professor in the Department of Condensed Matter Physics and Material Science. He has served in various TIFR committees as chair and member. He is also on the senates of IISER, Berhampur and IIT, Delhi. He is a member of the executive council of Optical Society of India, vice-chair of IEEE Photonics Mumbai chapter and member of the program committee of the Association of Asia Pacific Physics Societies – Division of Condensed Matter Physics. He is on the editorial board of journals, Scientific Reports, Frontiers in Physics, Encyclopedia of Applied Physics, and the Indian Journal of Pure and Applied Physics. He is an honorary Fellow of the Metrology Society of India and senior member of IEEE. His research interests are in nano and quantum photonics with over 140 journal publications.
