Kailasham Ramalingam completed his B.Tech in Chemical engineering from SVNIT, Surat with a silver medal for securing the second highest GPA in the department and a gold medal for his goal-keeping performance in Spardha 2013 (an all-India Sports festival ). He went on to do an MS in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering from the University of Pennsylvania, where he was attracted to the field of numerical methods and simulations for solving chemical engineering problems. He later completed a six-month internship at an IIT-Bombay incubated startup that makes biomass gasifiers. At the IITB-Monash Research Academy, he will be working with Dr. Rajarshi Chakrabarti and Dr. Ravi Jagadeeshan to do computational studies on polymers in the semi-dilute regime.
