Amol Tagad

Graduate Student

I'm Currently  pursuing Ph.D. at the Department of Chemistry, IIT Bombay and obtained my master's degree in chemistry from Savitribai Phule Pune University (SPPU) in 2017. I am working on intermolecular interactions present in molecular clusters in the gas phase using experimental and computational methods .

I am pursuing My PhD degree at Department of Chemistry IIT Bombay. I did my Master degrees in physical chemistry from Savitribai Phule Pune University (SPPU). I working on the molecular dynamics simulations of aggregates of  biomolecules. Currently I used Gromacs packages to study the Protein- nucleic acids interaction, Helicity of nucleic acids, topoisomerase.


Aman Pandey

Graduate Student

I obtained my MSc. in Chemical Sciences from Central University of Gujarat, Gandhinagar. After that I worked as a JRF in IIT Gandhinagar. In the year 2018, I joined PhD in the joint venture of IIT Bombay and Monash University, Australia. My research interest lies in the field of spectroscopic studies of squaramides based foldamers. The main objective of my research is the study of the secondary structure conformation of the newly synthesized molecule and its application in ion sensing.
