Dr. Kishore Ramineni received Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) in 2005 from Osmania University, Hyderabad and Master of Science (M.Sc.) in 2008 from Osmania University, Hyderabad. Immediately, he qualified for Junior Research Fellowship (JRF) conducted by Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) in 2008, and completed his PhD from Indian Institute of Chemical Technology (CSIR-IICT), Hyderabad, in 2015. During PhD he got opportunity to work for 3 months at ICIQ, Tarragona, Spain under student exchange programmed between ICIQ and IICT. Then, he moved to Korea Institute of Science and Technology, South Korea as a visiting scientist (postdoctoral fellowship) (September-2015 to July-2016) and then he moved as a postdoctoral fellow at Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics, Dalian, China (November-2016 to October-2020). He worked as a project associate at CSIR-Indian Institute of Chemical Technology for 9 months. Then he has been working as a Principal Investigator for DRDO sponsored project at Srimaharshi Research Institute of Vedic Technology from June 2022. Later, he appointed as an Assistant Professor at Anurag University, Hyderabad (September-2022 to till date). He has more than 15 research publications in highly reputed and peer-reviewed journals, 3 patents and 1 book chapters to his credit.
