Siddharth Kumar

I’m a postdoctoral research fellow at Prof. Ramanathan’s group, since January 2024. Before joining here, I completed my PhD at the Indian Institute of Science in Bangalore, India.
My previous work involves growth of manganite heterostructures and investigation of their electronic and magnetic properties. Further, I also explored the magnetic ground state of pentavalent iridates.

Research: Currently, my research focuses on synthesizing novel complex oxides thin films in various extreme conditions, which can be used to develop metamaterials for enhanced optical studies. This will help in development of better optoelectronic devices.
