Short summary of activities and expertiseI am Dr. Sethumathavan Vadivel, JSPS Fellow from Tokyo Institute of Technology-Japan. It is my immense pleasure to apply for the position in your esteemed Research Group. At present, I am working as a Post-Doctoral Research fellow which was funded by Japan Society for Promotion of Science (Standard) in the Department of Civil Engineering, Tokyo Institute of Technology, Japan. In December of 2019, December I was awarded the Chinese Academy of Science President award (PIFI) in Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics (DICP). Furthermore, I have obtained my PhD from Anna University-India under the title "Synthesis of Bismuth Based Composites for Environmental and Energy Applications," My specialization was Chemistry for B.Sc, M.Sc and PhD. I have been exposed to solved problems in the synthesis of various carbon materials, with different morphologies and utilized in photocatalysis, and supercapacitor applications. Key qualifications I gained during my Postdoctoral and PhD studies A strong education in chemistry, and materials synthesis and have expertise in writing research articles and proposals. Published 71 research articles in leading Publishers like RSC, Wiley, Elsevier, Springer, MDPI, Taylor and Francis, ASP. Published 10 Book Chapter in leading Publishers like ACS, Wiley, Elsevier, and Materials Research Forum  Hands-on experience in the synthesis of functionalized Graphene oxide, Carbon nitrides (g-C3N4, g-C3N5), Layered Double Hydroxides (LDH’S), Metal Organic Frameworks, Core-Shell architectures, etc., 10 years of experience in reading chemical mechanisms, interpreting analytical results. Interdisciplinary researcher with strong analytical skills in various applied science and Engineering disciplines. I hope the interdisciplinary approach and the facilities in research offered by you are the perfect opportunities to showcase my skills and knowledge gained through my career.
