Piran Kidambi

Piran Kidambi is an Assistant Professor at the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, Vanderbilt University. After receiving his PhD from the University of Cambridge, he pursued postdoctoral research at MIT through a Lindemann Trust Fellowship. Kidambi's research leverages the intersection between (i) nanomaterial synthesis, (ii) process engineering, and (iii) in situ metrology, to enable bottom-up novel materials design and synthesis for energy, separations, electronics, catalysis, and healthcare applications. His research has been recognized via several awards including the DOE Early Career Award (2022), ACS PMSE Young Investigator (2022), NSF CAREER (2020), ECS Toyota Young Investigator (2020), and Ralph E. Powe Junior Faculty Enhancement Award (2018), among others.
