More about Anumol Ashokkumar

Anumol Ashokkumar

Research Fellow


Anumol obtained her PhD (2013) in Materials Science from Indian Institute of Science Bangalore under the supervision of Prof. N. Ravishankar, based on her work on mechanisms of formation and thermal stability of functional nanostructures. She held a postdoctoral fellowship (2013-2015) in the Applied Materials Science Division of Department of Engineering Sciences at Uppsala University Sweden, with Prof. Klaus Leifer. Her research at Uppsala University involved synthesis, assembly and electrical characterization of semiconductor hetero-nanostructures and transmission electron microscopy. In August 2015, she moved to INL as a postdoctoral fellow to work on advanced electron microscopy of core-shell/filled nanotubes.
