Subramanian Sankaranarayanan received his BS degree in Chemical Engineering from Nagpur University, in 2000, and his MS degree in Chemical Engineering from Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, India, in 2002. After receiving his Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering in 2007 from University of South Florida, Tampa, he was a post-doctoral fellow at Harvard University (2007-2010). Dr. Sankaranarayanan is currently an Assistant Scientist at the Center for Nanoscale Materials at Argonne National Laboratory. His work focuses on development and application of multi-scale models spanning a wide range of spatial and temporal scales (finite element method, kinetic Monte-Carlo, coarse-grained, classical molecular dynamics and density functional theory) to a broad range of problems from electrochemical energy storage, corrosion, tribology and catalysis to chemical and biomedical sensing. He currently is leading an Argonne strategic effort on force-field development for reactive interfaces.
