Dr. Jith C. J.

Dr. Jith C. J. is currently working as post-doctoral researcher in Prof. Honey John’s research group in the Department of Polymer Science and Rubber Technology, Cochin University of Science and Technology. In the group, he is currently working on the development of MoS2 nanomaterial for sensing and energy applications. He has actively involved in the development of MoS2-hybrid nanomaterial-based electrodes for supercapacitor applications. Besides, he is involved in development of cellulose nanomaterials for sensing applications. He has received bachelor and master’s degree in chemistry from University of Calicut. Later he joined in the department of Applied Chemistry, Cochin University of Science and Technology and pursued his doctoral studies in Organic Chemistry under the guidance of Prof. N. Manoj. The doctoral degree was awarded in 2019 and soon after he joined in Dr. V. K. Praveen’s research group at CSIR-NIIST Trivandrum till March 2020. During doctoral studies his research focused on the development of novel methods for heterocycle synthesis, synthesis of heterocycle based organic dyes and their applications. At CSIR-NIIST, he was involved in the development of organelle specific cellular sensors.
