Dr. Sree received the BS and MS. degree in Chemistry from India and completed his Ph.D. from Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Madras, India. After Postdoctoral terms at Rice University and Kansas State University, we worked as a research scientist at Clemson University International Center for Automotive Research (CUICAR). He is currently a research assistant professor in the Polymer Institute at the University of Toledo. His primary research interests are in materials science and nanotechnology, with a focus on two-dimensional (2D) quantum structures. He has authored more than 50 research articles and is a Co-inventor is two Patents and six patent applications. His articles are highly cited (total citation >2500, h-index 26) and have five funded grant proposals. His current research focus is on devising unique pathways to design 2D quantum structures, engineering their properties, and leveraging them for energy and environmental applications.
