Dr. Vijay Kumar Ravi

  • Dr. Vijay Kumar Ravi Joined on 14 Jun2019 as guest Assistant Professor ( On Contract).Dr. Ravi has academic credentials in interdisciplinary science and technology and his research experiences is on the interface of biotechnology and nanotechnology. His current research is focused on protein self-assembly and aggregation for nanomaterials development. The various forms of nano aggregates such as oligomers and ordered amyloids like structures have been emerging as an application in engineering the protein nanoparticles, potential biomaterials as well as biphotonic materials. He did B. Pharm from MIT Muzaffarpur, Bihar, M. Tech in Biotechnology from Anna University Chennai Tamil Nadu. He obtained his Ph. D in Biotechnology from IIT Guwahati. His Ph.D. research work is on investigating the structure and Dynamics of aggregating protein employing the techniques of fluorescence time resolved, Foster resonance energy transfer and Atomic force microscopy.
  • After finishing the Ph. D. Dr. Ravi joined Prof. Ajay Sood Lab, Dept. of Physics, IISc Bangalore as a Research Associate there worked on study of nanomaterials-Nucleic acids (DNA, siRNA) interaction at nanoscale employing Atomic Force Microscopy. Dr. Ravi also worked for a short while on project DNA-Protein interactions at nanoscale employing Atomic Force Microscopy under Prof. K. Muniyappa, Dept. of Biochemistry at IISc Bangalore. Then Dr. Ravi moved IISER Bhopal to work on Early step protein aggregation and subsequent refolding under mentorship of Prof. Saptarshi Mukherjee through UGC (govt. of India) sponsored Post-Doctoral fellowship program. He has published several papers in peer reviewed journal with average impact factor 3.0. Also, several national and international conference proceedings.
  • Dr. Ravi also attended various workshops and training programs for enhancing the knowledge, presented his research and delivered research talk. His current total citation is approx. above 300 as per google scholar citation. Currently, Dr. Ravi having one sponsored project of above 36 lakhs from Science and Engineering Research Board (SERB), DST, Govt. of India.
