Surya Velappa Jayaraman
Dr. Surya has started working in the Department of Physics and Nanotechnology, SRM Institute of Science and Technology (formerly known as SRM University) from October 2016 onwards. Her research activity has started with the project entitled 'Interaction of molecules with carbon nanotubes and functionalization for hydrogen storage” during her Master of Philosophy (M.Phil.) course. After completion of M. Phil. course, she has worked as a project fellow in Asian Office of Aerospace Research and Development (AOARD) Project from July 2008 -July 2009. Followed by that, she has worked as Senior Research Fellow (SRF) in CSIR Emeritus Scientist Scheme Project entitled, 'Investigation of functionalized Nanostructured Carbon materials as a possible hydrogen storage medium”. From 2013 to 2016, she has worked as a postdoctoral researcher at Tohoku University, Japan on high-efficiency rare element extraction technology Project. This project deals with the modeling and simulations of ionic liquids for metal extraction. Her research interests are Carbon Nanomaterials and applications, 2D materials and functionalization, Hydrogen/Gas storage, Gas sensors, Chemical sensors, Ionic liquids, and applications. In SRM Institute of Science and Technology, she is leading Novel, Advanced, and Applied Materials (NAAM) Research Group. She has published about 40 papers in peer-reviewed international journals.
