Senior Research Fellow

Jesna Louis

Jesna Louis joined Department of Polymer Science and Rubber Technology at Cochin University of Science and Technology under the mentorship of Dr. Honey John in April 2017. Her research interests center around the opto-electronic application of semiconductor oxides and its organic/ inorganic hybrids. Currently she is also working in a project titled ‘Development of superhydrophilic graphene/semiconductor oxide nanohybrids for self-cleaning applications’ funded by DST-SERB. She holds a BS-MS degree in Chemistry (major) and Biology (minor) from Indian Institute of Science and Education Research, Bhopal. During her masters she worked in several projects on supercapacitor and white light emitting materials for organic light emitting diodes.
