picture-LakshmyLakshmy Pulickal Rajukumar received her B.Tech in Metallurgical and materials engineering from National Institute of Technology, Tiruchirappalli, India, in 2011. She joined Prof. Mauricio Terrones’ group at the Pennsylvania State University, USA in August 2011 and is currently working toward her PhD degree in Materials Science and Engineering. Lakshmy’s research focus includes the synthesis and characterization of novel nanomaterials, particularly doped carbon nanotubes (CNTs), 3-D networks of CNTs, graphene-CNT hybrids as well as the CVD synthesis of transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs). Her dissertation topic is “Synthesis and characterization of 3-dimensional networks using different nanocarbons” and is funded by the U.S. Air Force Office of Scientific Research MURI grant FA9550-12- 1-0035.
