Unravelling the charge generation pathways in organic and hybrid solar cells
The next generation of solar cells based on organic and hybrid semiconductors can be solution processed over large areas leading to solar cells that are cheaper than current technology as well as being lighter and flexible. Current state-of-the-art performance for organic and hybrid solar cells are ...

Investigation of the interface between electrochemically-active microorganisms and metals
The ability to interact electronically with conductive materials is a defining feature of electrochemically-active microorganisms. This process, known as extracellular electron transfer, results in a microbially-derived current and has been investigated primarily from the vantage point of maximising...

Rational Design of Materials for Energy Applications usingComputational Methods
In search for a sustainable supply of energy, development of green and renewable processes is desirable for mitigating climate change. Towards fulfilling this goal, design of nanoscale materials with desirable level of catalytic and/or electrocatalytic properties, essentially holds the key to succes...

Early Life Social, Economic and Family Predictors of the Trajectory of Malnutrition and Cognitive Development from Childhood to Adulthood
There is substantial evidence that young people in less affluent countries have worse health, well-being, and impaired development than those who live in affluent countries. For instance, many low- to middle-income countries (LMICs) are facing a double burden of malnutrition (DBM), resulting from th...

Synthesis and applications of non-viral gene vectors
The general aim of this project is to develop a new generation of non-viral vectors for the delivery of gene and biomolecules. Silica-based composite nanoparticles will be prepared with purpose-designed nanoparticle asymmetry, nanoscale surface roughness and compositions. Their cellular interactions...

Information flow in the normal and epileptic brain
Abnormal function within brain networks is a key determinants of seizure generation, spread and termination. Brain networks are also likely to play an important part in determining therapeutic response and in cognitive impairment associated with epilepsy. The combination of high spatial resolution o...

Understanding the mechanism of particle fragmentation, attrition, and agglomeration during coal and/or biomass gasification
Gasification of coal is now widely recognized as the core of clean coal technologies, particularly in the context of coal-to-liquids (CtL) technologies. There is significant interest on the Indian side, as part of a major government-backed initiative, to develop technology for conversion of high-ash...

Non-oxidative catalytic conversion of methane into aromatics over metal impregnated hierarchical zeolite
With continuous increase in the world energy demand and ever-increasing dependency on petroleum, over 86.7 million barrels of petroleum are processed every day in refinery around the world to meet the demand. The declining crude reserves have shifted focus on the natural gas as an alternative supply...

Ontologies of Force: Violence, Non-Violence and Resistance (Studies of Indian and Australian historical contexts through philosophy, film, literature.)
This project proposes to explore the relation between force, violence, non-violence, and resistance at two levels. From an ontological perspective, the task is to consider 'the being of force' to ask how and whether violence (and non-violence) and resistance are located in the categories through whi...
