Govind graduated with Master’s in Process & Energy Technology from TUDelft, Netherlands and B.Tech in Mechanical with Specialization in Energy Technology from Vellore Institute of Technology, India. His interest in Nanomaterials and Nanotechnology brings him to the IIT Hyderabad, where he is working on the project titled “Liquid cells for in-situ Transmission Electron Microscopy: Challenges, Opportunities and Applications”

Jaydeep Saha

Ph.D. Researcher

Jaydeep obtained his Master's in Materials Science from NIT Trichy and prior to that he graduated with a Bachelor's in Metallurgical Engineering from Jadavpur University. He is currently working on the processing and mechanical behaviour of High Entropy Alloys with Tailored Microstructural Heterogeneities with Prof. Pinaki Prasad Bhattacharjee as Ph.D advisor and Sairam K Malladi as co-supervisor.

Bikash Tripathy

Ph.D. Researcher

Bikash completed his Master's degree in Materials Science and Engineering from IIT Gandhinagar in 2019. During his M.Tech, he worked on Corrosion of Aluminum Alloys under the guidance of Dr. Jyoti Mukhopadhyay. These were friction stir welded dissimilar aluminum alloys and he developed experimental setups on corrosion testing (as per ASTM guidelines). Prior to this, he obtained his Bachelor's Degree in Production Engineering in 2016 from VSSUT, Burla, Odisha. Presently he is pursuing his Ph.D at IITH and working with Sairam K Malladi as his Ph.D advisor and Prof. Pinaki Prasad Bhattacharjee as a co-supervisor. His areas of interest include Corrosion and Electrochemistry, Phase diagrams, Phase Transformations, Electron microscopy and High Entropy Alloys.
