Dr. V. Thiruvengadam

Assistant Professor

Department of Science

Dr. V. Thiruvengadam earned his doctoral degree in magnetic nanocomposites from Indian Institute of Technology Bombay (IITB). He has completed M.Phil. in Physics and M.Sc. in Materials Science from Anna University Chennai. Previously he has worked as a project associate at Department of Physics, Indian Institute of Technology Madras, Project Research Assistant at Department of Physics, Indian Institute of Technology Bombay. He joined School of Physical Sciences, National Institute of Science Education and Research (NISER) as a Research Associate under a DST-Nano mission sponsored research project.

Dr. Thiruvengadam gained experience in electrospinning of polymer nanofiberes, biological synthesis of bacterial cellulose, chemical synthesis of magnetic nanoparticles and nanocomposites, fabrication of ferromagnetic thin films and its heterostructures using sputtering technique, various magnetic and structural characterization techniques during his research tenure.

Dr. Thiruvengadam has research interests in magnetic nanocomposites, ferromagnetic thin films and heterostructures for spintronic applications. He has authored and co-authored several research articles in international journals and also published a book chapter.
