Mr Bala Gopal Maddala

PhD Student

Bala completed his BS-MS dual degree program majoring in Chemistry at IISER-Pune in May, 2015. He had worked under the supervision of Dr. Angshuman Nag at IISER-Pune for his MS thesis. His MS thesis topic is “Ag (I) and Cu (II) Doped Colloidal CdSe Nanocrystals: Partial Cation Exchange and Effect on Photoluminescence.”

He is interested in the fields of nanoscience and nanotechnology. His research interests include synthesis and photophysics of nanomaterials. In June, 2015 he joined the IITB-Monash Research academy for his doctoral studies. Currently he is working on the project “Ultrafast dynamics in nanomaterials” with Prof. Anindya Datta (IITB) and Dr. Alison Funston (Monash University).
