It is not very often that one gets to work with his undergraduate school professor in his career. But I have been fortunate in that respect. Dr. Bosco Emmanuel of CECRI is currently visiting CMSE-CSIRO as a Distinguished Visiting Fellow. Dr Bosco is a theoretical electrochemist who has made important contributions in the various fields including (but not limited to) lithium batteries, corrosion, percolation and Feynman’s path integrals in leading journals. His current interests include developing a generic framework for Multiscale modeling in corrosion which coincides with our current interests.
Apart from his commendable work, he also was the first PhD student of Prof. late S. K. Rengarajan of IISc who was an eminent electrochemist. Dr. Bosco had not travelled outside India for nearly 23 years and was kind enough to accept CSIRO's invitation to work with us.
Everyday I am learning a new concept. and I am really happy about it.
