Dr. Saroj K. Nayak graduated from Jawaharlal Nehru University, India in 1995, with a Ph.D. degree in physical science. Before joining the faculty at Rensselaer in 2000 Dr. Nayak was a Princeton Materials Institute Jr. Fellow at Princeton University. He is currently a Professor in the Physics department at Rensselaer.
His research interests lie at the interface of physics, chemistry and engineering, with principle areas of focus on the study of atomic and electronic structures of matters using ab initio electronic structure calculation methods with classical and quantum molecular dynamics simulations and Monte Carlo methods.
The two major recent focuses of Dr. Nayak's research are -- study of nanostructured materials and simulations of biological molecules using electronic structure methods.
