Dr. N. Priyadarshini, completed her B.Sc (Chemistry) in 2007 from Sri Sarada College for Women, Periyar University, Salem, M.Sc (Applied Chemistry) in 2009 from National Institute of Technology, Tiruchirapalli, Tamil Nadu with excellent academic record. She secured second rank in her post graduation. She received her Ph. D during 2015 from Homi Bhabha National Institute, Mumbai and her research work was carried out at Indira Gandhi Centre for Atomic Research, Kalpakkam. Her research work mainly focused on “Studies related to polymerization and colloid formation of Actinides under off-normal conditions”.  She qualified UGC-CSIR NET (Lectureship) and GATE.

Before joining SSN, she worked as a Research Associate at Indian Institute of Technology-Madras for 6 months and later she was a post doctoral research associate at IGCAR for almost 10 months. During her research period, she published seven research articles in peer reviewed international journals and eight research papers in national and international conferences and received two best presentation awards. She attended an international conference at Budapest, Hungary which was funded by Department of Science and Technology, Govt. of India.

Current research interest:

  • Colloids and Interface Science
  • Self-assembly
  • Supra-molecular chemistry
  • Coordination polymers
  • Metal hydrolysis
