Vignesh Kuduva Radhakrishnan, a student of the IITB- Monash Research Academy’s joint PhD programme, successfully defended his PhD thesis on Wednesday, 9th November 2016. He was jointly guided by Prof. Gopalan Rajaraman from IIT Bombay and Prof. Keith Murray from Monash University.
His work focused on the synthesis and assessment of single molecule magnets, which are metal complexes capable of retaining their magnetization even in the absence of a magnetic field.
“It was a delight to work with two of the best supervisors in the world. I would like to thank the Academy for this wonderful joint PhD programme” said Vignesh.
Vignesh plans to join the Texas A & M University as a post-doctoral fellow. We wish him all the very best!
