Ganpati Ramanath, the John Tod Horton ’52 Professor of Materials Science and Engineering, has been named a fellow of the American Physical Society (APS). The APS Fellowship Program recognizes members who have made advances in physics through original research and publication or significant innovative contributions in the application of physics to science and technology
Nominated by the APS Division of Materials Physics, Ramanath was cited for “creative approaches to realize novel properties in bulk nano materials fabricated from nanocrystal building blocks and molecularly tailored interfaces; and uncovering atomistic and electronic structure-level mechanisms of property enhancements.”
Known throughout the global materials science and engineering community as a research leader, inventor, and innovator, Ramanath focuses his research on developing a fundamental understanding of structure-processing-property relationships in nanomaterials and interfaces for emergent applications in energy and electronics.
Ramanath earned his doctoral degree in materials science and engineering in 1997 at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, his master’s degree in materials science and engineering at the University of Cincinnati, and his bachelor’s degree in metallurgical engineering at the Indian Institute of Technology Madras. He joined the Rensselaer faculty in 1998.
