Rahul Prasanna Misra

Graduate Student

B. Tech. in Chemical Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur (2013)
M. S. in Chemical Engineering Practice, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (2014)



Rahul is currently studying new techniques for layer-by-layer exfoliation of two-dimensional atomically thin sheets of materials like graphene, molybdenum disulfide, and phosphorene. He is also interested in studying the electronic properties of van-der-Waals heterostructures where single monolayers of different 2D materials are stacked on top of each other by van-der-Waals forces. When not thinking about research, Rahul loves to spend his spare time listening to music and watching cricket.
