Biography

Dr. Ashok Adya is the Leader of the Condensed Matter Group and BIONTHE (Bio- and Nano-Technologies for Health & Environment) Centre at the University of Abertay Dundee (UAD). Dr. Ashok Adya is a Professor of Nanotechnology in the Division of Biotechnology & Forensic Sciences of the School of Contemporary Sciences at the UAD. He is internationally recognised for his nanoscopic structural work on a wide variety of systems ranging from biological systems and processes (proteins, yeast cells, Candida cells - pathogenic and non-pathogenic, virus-encoded proteins, protein-RNA interactions, etc.), molten salts, non-aqueous electrolyte solvents and solutions (NAES) to molecular liquids and liquid mixtures, by using Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM), optical & fluorescence microscopy, neutron diffraction (ND), neutron reflection (NR), small angle neutron scattering (SANS), X-ray diffraction (XRD), XAFS measurements, and Molecular Dynamics (MD) Simulations. He has a formidable array of national and international collaborators working in these fields. He derives his enthusiasm through these links and collaborations, and enjoys passing this drive and motivation to the students through his teaching. Dr. Ashok Adya has given innumerable invited, plenary, opening, and key-note lectures at international conferences/symposia, universities, and research institutions around the globe. He is a member of the EPSRC peer-review panel and referees research articles for various international journals. Dr. Ashok Adya has taught a wide range of subjects in Chemistry, and Forensic Sciences, such as Classical Thermodynamics, Statistical Thermodynamics, Ionic Equilibria, Applied Electrochemistry, Electroanalytical Techniques, Chemical Kinetics, Industrial Chemistry, Environmental Chemistry, Molecular Spectroscopy, Computer Chemical Modelling, Applied Surface Chemistry, Industrial Chemicals, Analytical Chemistry, Forensic Applications of Image Processing and Enhancement, Firearms, Ballistics, and Gunshot Residues, History of Microscopy, Microscopic Techniques, Chemical Enhancement of Images followed by Laser Detection, Neutron Scattering: Techniques and Applications. In addition, Dr. Ashok Adya also published five Chemistry text books at the Secondary and Senior Secondary School level, and has more than 100 research publications to his credit.
