Assistant Professor

Mr. Susheel Kumar G


Mr. Susheel Kumar Gundanna obtained his Master’s from the Department of Physics, Bangalore University, Bengaluru. After completing his M.Sc., he joined the Surface and Interface group at CIIRC, Jyothy Institute of Technology, as a Project Fellow. During this time, he worked on a project entitled “In-situ TEM study of nucleation and growth of embedded Ge nanostructures in SiO2 and Si3N4 matrices” funded by UGC-DAE-CSR under the guidance of Dr Umananda M Bhatta. He is currently registered for the doctoral program at Visvesvaraya Technological University. He has experience in handling several sophisticated instruments such as SEM, XRD, TGA, UV-Vis Spectroscopy, FTIR, etc. He has more than 5 years of research experience with several publications to his credit. He has presented his research at various national and international conferences.  His main research areas include the synthesis of embedded nanostructures using low-energy ion implantation and chemical methods, electron microscopy of nanostructured materials, and surface/interface characterization.
