Dr. Sangeeta Santra completed her Bachelor of Technology in Metallurgical Engineering at National Institute of Technology, Durgapur, India in 2008. She pursued her Master in Engineering in 2010, and completed her PhD in 2016 in Materials Engineering at Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, India. She had a short stint at Saint Gobain Research India, Chennai in 2016 where she worked as a Senior Research Engineer. In 2017, she received Royal Society Newton International Fellowship, and worked with the Centre for Applied Superconductivity (CfAS) group in the Department of Materials at University of Oxford, UK. She joined the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at IIT Delhi as an Assistant Professor in November, 2019.
Her research uses solid-state diffusion as a tool to understand the microstructure and kinetics of diverse synergic phenomena underlying the phase evolution in the multi-component systems, and correlates with the functional response of the materials for aerospace and superconducting magnet applications. Her research interests focus on the areas of thermo-kinetics, phase transformation and microstructure-property correlation in the multi-material systems.
