Welcome to our new Associate Editor: P. Sujatha Devi

We are delighted to welcome Dr P. Sujatha Devi to the RSC Advances team!

Dr. P. Sujatha Devi received her Ph.D in Chemistry from the Inorganic and Physical Chemistry department,  Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore in 1991. Dr. Devi has made outstanding research contributions in frontier and diverse areas of solid state chemistry, spanning from material synthesis, surface functionalization and characterization through to application and device development.  Dr. Devi’s main research contributions are essentially in the synthesis, processing and study of the properties of functional materials, alongside assessment of their structure-property correlations.

Her contributions in processing and characterization of functional nanomaterials for applications ranging from fuel cell, dye sensitized solar cell, chemical and biosensors and drug delivery are noteworthy.

She is currently Chief Scientist and was heading the Chemical Sciences and Technology Division at CSIR-National Institute for Interdisciplinary Science and Technology, Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala, India prior to taking up this position.

She was Editor of the Taylor & Francis Journal Transactions of the Indian Ceramic Society from 2015 to 2018. She is also very active in contributing to the enhancement of science in the society through being a member of the Executive Council of the major scientific societies in India, CRSI and MRSI.

P. Sujatha was elected as a Fellow of the RSC in 2017, and was featured in the cross journal themed collection Celebrating Excellence in Research: 100 Women of Chemistry.
