Prof. Ramki Kalyanaraman (Send him an email)

Dr. Kalyanaraman is a faculty member at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville with a joint appointment between Materials Science and Engineering & Chemical and Biomolecular engineering. His current research interests are in the areas of advanced materials (for energy, sensing and electronics), nanomanufacturing, and plasmonics.

  • Dr. Kalyanaraman earned his undergraduate degree in physics from the Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur in 1991, his Master of Technology degree in Materials Science from the Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur in 1994 and his Ph.D degree in Materials Science and Engineering from North Carolina State University in 1998. His previous reasearch has been in the area of oxide thin film growth, ion implantation as a post-doctoral researcher with Oak Ridge National Lab and (then) Lucent Technologies Bell Labs, and in dynamic thin film assembly and laser dewetting as a Faculty in the Physics department at Washington University in St. Louis.
  • Dr. Kalyanaraman is the recipient of a 2005 National Science Foundation CAREER award and a 2011 UT College of Engineering Research Award. Several of his collaborative research activities have been highlighted by news media and have appeared in the American Institute of Physics Virtual Journal of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology. He regularly publishes in top journals (Adv Mat, PRB, PRL, Nat Mat, ACS Nano, Nanotechnology, Nanoscale), has over 200 papers and presentations and 35 invited talks at national and international conferences and Universities. He has also organized international conference symposium and workshops, is an inventor and involved in creating start-ups.
