Dr. Anoop Thomas
After completing my master's degree (M.Sc. in Chemistry) from St. Thomas’ college Thrissur, I joined the group of Prof. K. George Thomas (IISER-Thiruvananthapuram) for my doctoral studies and defended my thesis in 2015. In 2012, I received the Indo-Swiss joint research fellowship and worked on the characterization of mixed-ligand metal nanoparticles under Prof. Francesco Stellacci, EPFL Switzerland.
I joined the group of Prof. Thomas Ebbesen (Kavli Laureate 2014), University of Strasbourg, France as a postdoctoral researcher in 2015. Experiments in Strasbourg led to the first demonstration of modified chemical reactivity, chemoselectivity, superconductivity and enhanced ferromagnetism under vibrational strong coupling. Other than strong coupling, I was associated with Dr. Cyriaque Genet (CNRS director of research, University of Strasbourg), to develop the Mueller polarimetry based tool to study chiroptical features of hierarchical supramolecular assembly.
