Rational Design of Single-Atom Catalysts using Computational Methods

​Jayendran aims to study the rational design of single-atom alloys for ethanol non-oxidative dehydrogenation reaction using Density Functional Theory (DFT) simulations. 

He has a bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering from Mumbai University and briefly worked as a Junior Research Fellow (JRF) at IIT Guwahati. Currently, he is enrolled in a University of Queensland-IIT Delhi Academy of Research (UQIDAR) joint PhD program under the co-supervision of Prof. Debra Bernhardt (UQ) and Prof. M. Ali Haider (IIT Delhi).
