Ravi Kumar Biroju qualified with a Masters degree in Physics at the Osmania University, Hyderabad, India in 2009.
He did his PhD thesis at the Centre for Nanotechnology, Indian Institute of Technology Guwahati, India studying on the topic ‘Chemical Vapour Deposited (CVD) growth of two dimensional (2D) nanomaterials, 2D van der Waal solids for photoconductive and photocatalysis’.
He placed as a post-doctoral research fellow in Tata Institute of Fundamental Research Hyderabad (TIFR-H) with Dr. T. N. Narayanan’s research group, immediately after his PhD. He was awarded National Postdoctoral fellowship, Science and Education Research Board, India in 2017. Ravi also received "Top Cited Author Award (India) from IOP Publishing, UK" on one of his articles "Catalyst free growth of ZnO nanowires on graphene and graphene oxide and its enhanced photoluminescence and photoresponse." This has been in the Top 1% of the most-cited papers from India in the field of Materials published across the whole IOP Publishing portfolio in the past three years (2015 to 2017), using citations recorded in Web of Science.
He is currently working as a Marie-Sklodowska-Curie (MSC) research fellow at the Nanoscale Physics Research Laboratory (NPRL) with Dr Wolfgang Theis.
