Senior Research Fellow

Meera Sathyan
Biography

Meera joined this research group in July 2016. She received her Bachelors and Masters degree in Chemistry from Sacred Heart College, Thevara, Kerala. Her M.Phil thesis was based on synthesis and characterisation of anatase TiO2 nanoparticles and its photocatalytic applications. Her research interests are concentrated in magnetic nanohybrids for electronic and electromagnetic applications. She is also working on water purification using iron oxide - graphene oxide hybrids and on the development of nanoscrolls from various 2D materials.
