Ranked Adjunct & Adjunct Faculty
Subramanian Ramachandran received his Doctorate in Physics from the University of Washington, Seattle in 2007. In spring 2009, he had taught an introductory physics course covering Optics, Thermodynamics and Modern Physics in the Department of Physics at Seattle University, WA. Prior to returning to graduate school in 2002, he worked at Energy Conversion Devices (ECD), Inc in Troy, MI as a Research Scientist for eight years. There he was instrumental in successfully demonstrating a hydrogen powered two-wheeler to the US Department of Energy. At ECD he was also involved in materials research related to metal hydrides and thermoelectric materials. His research interests are in the area of condensed matter physics, particularly studying phenomena at cryogenic temperatures and materials research. He is a co-inventor on five US patents and has three scientific publications to his credit in peer-reviewed journals. He also holds a graduate degree in Physics from Wayne State University, Detroit, MI and a degree in Cryogenic Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur. He earned his undergraduate degree from the Birla Institute of Technology and Science, Pilani, India. He looks forward to the opportunity to introduce topics in physics to art students at Cornish.
