Soundarrajan Chandrasekaran

Postdoctoral Fellow

Soundarrajan Chandrasekaran was born in India. He received his PhD from University of South Australia, Australia under the supervision of Professor Nicolas H. Voelcker and Professor Thomas Nann. His research interests include fabrication of porous silicon, porous silicon nanoparticles, silicon nanowire arrays, diatom-derived silicon as photoelectrode materials for solar water electrolysis. He started his postdoc research at Dr. Vincent Artero group, CEA Grenoble in November 2015. His project involves the attachment of hydrogenase mimics onto semiconductors.
