Vasudevan P. Biju
Vasudevan P. Biju studied chemistry at Kerala University and received his Ph.D. degree in chemistry on photoinduced electron transfer processes in fullerene-aniline and fullerene-heteroaromatic dyads. Then, he was a Postdoctoral Fellow at National Institute of Advanced Interdisciplinary Research, Japan, a JSPS Postdoctoral Fellow at Nanotechnology Research Institute, National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST), Japan, and a Postdoctoral Fellow at Fundamental Science Directorate, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL), WA. His postdoctoral research included spectroscopy and microscopy of single-molecules and nanoparticles. Following this, he was invited to National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST), Japan, in 2004, where he is a faculty member now. He is also taking (2007) a visiting position at Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, the University of Texas at Austin, and a Visiting Professor position at center for arthropod bioresources and biotechnology, Kerala University. His research interests include spectroscopy and microscopy of single-molecules, quantum dots, metal nanoparticles, and bioconjugated nanomaterials.
