Postdoctoral Scholars

Surendra Anantharaman

Email: surenb@seas.upenn.edu

Surendra Anantharaman joined as a Postdoctoral Researcher at the University of Pennsylvania in Fall 2019. His current research focuses on understanding strong light-matter interactions in two-dimensional (2D) heterostructures and near-field spectroscopy studies of excitonic materials at small-length scales. He obtained his Ph.D. from École Polytechnique Fédérale De Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland, in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering. During his Ph.D. studies, he focused on investigating exciton dynamics in supramolecular assemblies for their application in optoelectronic devices.
