A PhD student from IIT-B chemistry department, Jayeeta Saha, has been selected to represent India at Lindau Nobel Laureates Meeting 2020 in Lindau, Germany, in June.
The student who works on electrocatalysis with namomaterials at IIT-B, is excited at the prospect of meeting John B Goodenough, who won the Nobel in chemistry for co-creating the lithium-ion batteries. She was shortlisted by the department of science and technology, Government of India.
“The Lindau meeting brings together nearly 70 Nobel Laureates in various disciplines for both technical and non-technical interactions with over 600 students and early-stage researchers. The selected candidates usually pertain to the top 5 % of the applicants and follow a rigorous examination by the committee,” said IIT Bombay in a statement.
Two other PhD scholars from India, Srimadhavi Ravi and Dependu Dolui, both from the discipline of Chemistry at IIT Gandhinagar, have also been selected this year to attend the prestigious 70th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting.
