Prof. M.V. Reddy
|Dr. M.V. Reddy obtained his Ph. D (2003) in the area of Materials Science from ICMCB-CNRS)/ENSCPB, University of Bordeaux, France. From July 2003, he is working in National University of Singapore (NUS), Singapore. For the last 15 years, he has been working on the nano/submicron sized materials for Li-ion battery materials (cathodes, anodes, supercapacitors and solid electrolytes), including novel methods of synthesis, characterization and evaluation of the electrochemical properties. He has published around 163 papers in various international journal (http://scholar.google.com.sg/citations?user=pWKr2M0AAAAJ&hl=en) and gave 70 talks (Plenary (10), keynote (10) and Invited talks (38) and 16 contributed talks) at various conferences. His h-index; 50 and 9500 citations. Reddy is one of the top 1% highly cited scientists (data from InCites, Thomson Reuters) and According to Field-Weighted Citation Impact (FWCI) data base listed #256 out of 500 authors worldwide (based on number of publications) under electrochemistry and according to publications in top 10%, I am ranking no. #37 and ranked no 1 on the molten salt synthesis. He authored a landmark publication on electrode materials for lithium-ion batteries and their reaction mechanisms that appeared in Chemical Reviews (impact factor 47; the paper has been cited over 1550 times since July. 2013). He is serving as editorial advisory board member in “Materials Research Bulletin” and several open access Journals, and he served as theme chair for Energy and Environment and session chair for Batteries, Fuel cells and materials for Environmental protection in International Conference of Young Researchers on Advanced Materials (ICYRAM-IUMRS) 2012, Singapore. He trained more than 250 local high school/college and International exchange students and 9 Ph.D students. His projects won many awards in national and international conferences and his project won 2nd prize in prestigious Intel International Science &Engg. Fair (ISEF 2013) and 1st prize from American Chemical Society, USA. He won Outstanding Science Mentorship Award (2010, 2011, 2012 & 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016), from Ministry of Education, Singapore and Inspiring Research Mentor Award (2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 & 2017) from NUSHS. He is visiting professor and serving as a Ph.D thesis examiner for various universities.
