Bhanu Nandan studied polymer science at the G.J. University of Science & Technology, Hisar, India. Subsequently, he worked as a Research Fellow at the Defense Research & Development Organization of India at its Kanpur laboratory and obtained his Ph.D. degree in applied chemistry in 2003 from the Kanpur University, Kanpur, India. Afterwards, he carried out postdoctoral research with Professor Hsin-Lung Chen at the National Tsing Hua University, Hsinchu City, Taiwan. In 2006, he joined Professor Manfred Stamm?s group at the Leibniz Institute of Polymer Research, Dresden, Germany, as a Guest Scientist. Since June 2010, he has been an Assistant Professor at the Department of Textile Technology, Indian Institute of Technology Delhi, Delhi, India. Dr. Nandan?s current research focuses on novel routes for fabricating nanostructured polymer fibers, block-copolymer-based nanotechnology, and scattering techniques in polymer. He has published about 40 research papers and contributed to a book on supramolecular chemistry. Some of his highly cited works include self-assembly in block copolymers supramolecular assemblies; hierarchical self-assembly in hairy rod-like polyaniline structures; direct patterning of metal nanoparticles using block-copolymer-based templates; assembly of magnetic nanoparticles in block copolymer nanostructures, and so forth.
