Iyyappa Rajan (Post Doctoral Fellow)

Iyyappa Rajan

Dr. P. Iyyappa Rajan has joined Indo-Korea Science and Technology Center (IKST) as a Post-doctoral Research Fellow on July, 2017. Rajan has graduated (B.Sc. & M.Sc. Chemistry) from Loyola College, Chennai and obtained Ph.D. from Vellore Institute of Technology (VIT), Chennai Campus. His Ph.D. thesis was focused on the density functional theory calculations on electronic, magnetic and optical properties of multiferroic materials funded by DST-SERB. In prior to his doctoral studies, he worked as a Corporate Supervisor in MRF Tyres R&D Center, Chennai from June, 2013 - January, 2014. Rajan’s research interests are in the area of multifunctional materials, energy materials, structural materials, catalysis and materials characterization. He has both experimental and computational research experience in the field of materials science.
