K. V. Lakshmi

Associate Professor
chemistry and chemical biology
Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute
United States of America


Dr. Lakshmi is an Associate Professor in the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology and Scientific Director of the Baruch ’60 Center for Biochemical Solar Energy Research at Rensselaer. She is trained in the development and application of advanced biophysical spectroscopy at Brandeis, the Francis Bitter Magnet Laboratory at MIT, and Yale University. She is recognized worldwide as a leader in the current generation of young physical chemists and biophysicists for her research on the development of state-of-the-art multi-frequency multi-dimensional pulsed EPR spectroscopy, solids NMR spectroscopy and electron-nuclear spectroscopy methods. In fact, she is one of very few researchers around the world with expertise and training in developing both advanced solids NMR and pulsed multi-frequency EPR spectroscopy methods. She applies her advanced training and knowledge in magnetic resonance spectroscopy, molecular genetics, biochemistry, inorganic and bioinorganic chemistry, computational chemistry and in situ observation of light-driven intermediates to address the molecular mechanisms of solar energy conversion in natural and artificial photosynthetic systems.
