Soumya S. Bhat (Research Scientist)

Soumya S. Bhat

Dr. Soumya S. Bhat is working as a research scientist at Indo-Korea Science and technology Center (IKST), Bangalore since January 2019. Previously, she was postdoctoral research fellow at IKST from October 2016 to December 2018. Before joining IKST, she worked as an adjunct faculty at Arizona State University, USA. She did her PhD in computational materials science at Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, under the supervision of Prof.

Upadrasta Ramamurty (IISc) and Prof. Umesh V. Waghmare (JNCASR). Her research interest is in the fundamental understanding of relationship between structure and properties of materials at the atomic level.
