Pali Indrasekara


Pali received her PhD in Materials Science and Engineering from Rutgers University, NJ under the supervision of Prof. Laura Fabris. Her dissertation research revolved around the surface enhanced Raman spectroscoy (SERS)-based applications in particular bio-imaging and bio/chemical sensing.  She developed application-oriented effective SERS substrates by controlled assembly and the morphology tuning of nanoparticles via bottom-up approaches. She joined the Landes' group in August 2014. Her current research interests are in the single particle electrocatalysis, and understanding the bio-nano interface at the single molecule level. In her spare time, she enjoys hiking, reading, traveling and spending time with family.
