Aniruddha received his M.S. in chemistry (concentration physical chemistry) from NISER Bhubaneswar where he worked with Professor Upakarasamy Lourderaj investigating non-statistical reaction dynamics and photodissociation dynamics of methanol. Prior to his thesis work at NISER, Aniruddha worked in Professor Ananth Govind Rajan’s lab at IISc Bengaluru investigating fluid transport on 2D materials and formulated a mean-field theory of electrical double layers with ion-specific interactions. As a Ph.D. student, his research interests lie in developing multi-scale methods to study metal organic frameworks.
