BRIEF BIOGRAPHY

Prof. Sangaraju Shanmugam obtained his doctorate in 2004 from Indian Institute of Technology, Madras, India in the field of heterogenous catalysis. Thereafter, in 2005, he joined Department of Chemistry, Bar-Ilan University, Israel as a Postdoctoral Fellow, where he investigated “Sonoelectrochemical Synthesis of metal nanoparticles”. In late 2007, he joined as a JSPS postdoctoral fellow at Waseda University and continued his research in "Catalysis for energy applications". In 2011, he was appointed as an Assistant Professor at DGIST, Korea. Shanmugam currently has 112 refereed publications to his credit, 5 Indian Patents and filed 8 Korean patents. His technical contributions have been recognized by many awards including JSPS Fellow from Japan, Samuel and Helene Soref Young Scientist from Bar-Ilan University, Israel and Prof. Langmuir Prize for the Best Thesis, IIT Madras. Shanmugam’s current research interests focus on the development of cost-effective, durable electrode materials for polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cells. His areas of research encompass synthesis and characterization of nanomaterials and their applications towards energy conversion and storage, biosensors and biomedical applications.
