My name is Meera Joy, currently a 4th year Integrated BS-MS student at Indian Institute of Science Education and Research, Tirupati (IISER-T), majoring in Chemistry. I would like to work in the interface of chemistry and biology. I am interested in applying chemical synthesis in the field of Biology/Medicine to synthesize biologically relevant molecules including drug molecules.
Prakhar is an Integrated MSc. in Chemistry (5 years) student at the National Institute of Science Education and Research, Bhubaneshwar. He has previous research experience in photochemistry, metal-organic frameworks, and supramolecular chemistry. He is currently doing his master’s project in porphyrin chemistry with a focus on modulating non-Hückel aromaticity under Prof. A. Srinivasan. He was looking forward to working on synthesizing novel polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) for application in spintronics in summer 2020.
