Bio

Dr. Duraisamy Kumaresan received his Ph. D. in Inorganic Chemistry from IIT Bombay (India) in 2004. In 2005, he joined as a post-doc in Tulane University, LA (USA) for pursuing photo/electro-chemical studies on various transition metal complexes, and charge injection dynamics between multi-layer titania networks and organic dyes. Later he moved to the University of Houston, Texas (USA) for pursuing dye-sensitized solar cells research. He joined the Department of Chemical Engineering and Materials Science, Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, in 2009.

Currently, he is leading an interdisciplinary research team in developing materials for the construction of more efficient solar cells, photocatalysts, and photodetectors. His major research interests are dye-sensitized solar cells, quantum dot sensitized solar cells, nanostructured inorganic-organic hybrid semiconductors, self-assembly, electron donor-acceptor systems and ionic liquids.
