Pawan Kumar Jha

Post-doctoral Fellow

I am a post-doctoral fellow in the SAI-MATerials group at the Department of Materials Engineering, Indian Institute of Science, Bengaluru. My research interests focus on ab-initio modelling of materials and predicting novel properties using machine learning.

While I received my B.Tech. degree in Mechanical Engineering from Biju Patnaik University of Technology, Odisha, I received my M.Tech. degree from the Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur. For my Ph.D. thesis, I worked on designing electrode materials for K-ion batteries in Prof. Prabeer Barpanda’s group at the Materials Research Centre of Indian Institute of Science.

Apart from research, I enjoy playing badminton and watching movies.

So far, I have been involved with the following publications with the group.
