Dr Prasanth received his PhD in Engineering from Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering, Geyongsang National University, Republic of Korea, in 2009, under prestigious Brain Korea (BK21) Fellowship. He completed his B.Tech and M.Tech from Cochin University of Science and Technology (CUSAT), India. After a couple of years attachment stint as Project Scientist at Indian Institute of Technology (IIT-D), New Delhi, he moved to abroad for his PhD studies in 2007. His PhD research was focused on fabrication and investigation of nanoscale fibrous electrolytes for high performance energy storage devices. He completed his Engineering doctoral degree in less than three years and still it’s an unbroken record in Republic of Korea. After the PhD, Dr. Prasanth joined as Research Scientist at Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore in collaboration with Energy Research Institute at NTU (ERI@N) and TUM CREATE, a joint electromobility research project between Germany's Technische Universität München (TUM), Germany. Dr. Prasanth was selected for SAGE Research Foundation Fellowship, Brazil (2009), Estonian Science Foundation Fellowship, a member of European Science Foundation (2010). After 4 years in Singapore, Dr. Prasanth moved to Prof. Pulickal M Ajayan’s group as Research Scientist at Rice University, USA. He has a general research interest in polymer synthesis and processing, nanomaterials, green/nanocomposites, and electrospinning. His current research focused on nanoscale materials and polymer composites for printed and light weight charge storage solutions including high temperature supercapacitors and batteries.
