Bhoje Gowd received his B.Sc. and M.Sc. (Tech) in Polymer Science and Technology from Sri Krishnadevaraya University, Anantapur, Andhra Pradesh and his Ph.D. from University of Pune, Pune (work carried out at NCL under the guidance of Dr. C. Ramesh). He worked as a post-doctoral fellow in Prof. Kohji Tashiro’s group at Toyota Technological Institute, Nagoya, Japan and as an Alexander von Humboldt Fellow in Prof. Manfred Stamm’s group at Leibniz Institute of Polymer Research, Dresden, Germany. After a short stay at Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore as a Centenary post-doctoral fellow in Prof. S. Ramakrishnan’s group, he joined CSIR-NIIST, Trivandrum as a DST Ramanujan Fellow.

"Our research focuses on nanostructured polymers with the aim of opening up new areas of applications and to clarify the relevant science in the field"

Research Interests

Nanostructures based on self-assembly of block copolymers

Crystallization and morphology of multiphase polymeric systems

(in particular biodegradable polymers, block copolymers, conducting polymers, and nanocomposites)

Polymer/inorganic hybrid materials

Polymer-solvent complexes and intercalates

Structural characterization of polymer materials by X-ray scattering techniques

Congratulations Mr. Vipin G. Krishnan for the best poster award at SPSI MACRO-2022.
