Dr. Danveer Singh

Dr. Danveer Singh completed his Bachelor and Master (BS-MS) integrated degree program from the Indian Institute of Science Education and Research (IISER), Pune in 2012. During his undergraduate program, he was awarded INSPIRE (SHE), DST scholarship. He completed his doctoral degree from IISER Pune in 2017. During his doctorate program, he was awarded INSPIRE (AORC), DST, India.  He has been working in the field of light-matter interaction at the nano/micro-scale dimension. His research interest focused on the area of light-matter interaction and currently, working on the reconfigurable meta-optics.

Dr. Sukanta Nandi

Sukanta completed his Master of science (MSc) in Physics from Sikkim University in 2014, during which he was awarded the gold medal for securing first position. He then received his MSc (Engg) along with Ph.D. from the Department of Instrumentation and Applied Physics (IAP) at Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bangalore, in the year 2020. His research interests include nanomaterial synthesis, device fabrication and understanding light-matter interaction in nanomaterials. Apart from research, he has keen interest in playing table tennis.


Shany Cohen 

Shany obtained her dual BSc. degree in Materials Engineering and Physics from the Technion. Following her graduation, she spent several years in Industry including 5 years in Carl Zeiss Inc. as an algorithm and software engineer for optics and lithographic modules and systems. Shany joined the group in 2020, working on temperature invariant metasurfaces. She received her MSc in April 2022 (cum laude), and is currently perusing her PhD.

Vladimir kostriukov 

Vladimir Kostriukov Vlad received his BSc (2019) and MSc (2022) in Physics, from Bar-Ilan University. His MSc research focused on investigating the magnetoresistance properties of isolated antiferromagnets. Vlad joined the group in September 2022 as a PhD student, working on electrically reconfigurable nanophotonics using phase transition materials.
