Ram Seshadri

Professor of Materials/Chemistry & Biochemistry and Co-Director of the Materials Research Laboratory (MRL). His research encompasses a number of areas in the chemistry of inorganic materials, including new ways of preparing materials, magnetism in inorganic solids, oxide and chalcogenide nanoparticles, chemical patterning of inorganic materials on large (micrometer) length scales, seeking clues from nature on how to make new high-performance materials, and finally, using first principles electronic structure calculations to predict new material properties.
