BIO

Dr. Srinivasan is currently working as an Assistant Professor at the Physics Department, Tuskegee University who involved in full-load teaching, supervising externally funded research projects, and service activities at the university. He has more than a decade of research experience in interdisciplinary areas of research on experimental Condensed Matter or Materials Physics, Renewable Energy, and Nanotechnology. He has secured approximately $0.5M in externally funded projects in terms of equipment acquisition and undergraduate and graduate students' research support. At Tuskegee University, Dr. Srinivasan has an well established research laboratory which is housed with number of state-of-the-art equipment such as fume hood, nitrogen filled glove box, BET surface area analyzer, hydrogen sorption apparatus, muffle, tube furnaces and high energy planetary ball mill etc. He is currently supervising and mentoring four undergraduate students from both the main stream Physics major and double major students. Dr. Srinivasan has one US patent, 6 book chapters and more than 50 peer reviewed journal publications to his credit.
