Description of Research Interests
In the past, I have been the Project Co-ordinator and the Principal Investigator of two large projects on Liquid Crystals, Science Programme (1990-93) and the Human Capital and mobility programme (1994-97). Both of these projects were approved by the Science/Physics Committee of the EU. Under the 5th programme, I was a partner in two projects (i) Liquid Crystalline dendrimers and (ii) Synclinic and Anticlinc Liquid Crystals. These were successfully completed I was granted a two year project by the ACS on glass science in 1999. In 2000, I was awarded a basic research grant to work on the dynamic pyroelectric effect, strategic project on low k, and 2 Science Foundation of Ireland grants. I was awarded 2 major projects of ~1.35 M Euro by the Science Foundation of Ireland, under one of which Professor A. Fukuda was appointed for two years as a SFI Research Professor. Under FP7 I was one of the 7 PI's in a BIND project. The project started in Feb. 2008. Trinity share of the total budget was Euro 400,000. This project was completed in Feb 2012.As a result of these projects, important discoveries have been made by my research group. I had two TIDA projects in 2010 and 2012. Funding in each of these was of the order of Euro 95,000. These were successfully completed too. The other Research Professors were Professor Antoni Kocot [2008-2009] (University of Silesia, Katowice, Poland) and Professor S. Kumar (2012-2013) RRI, Bangalore, India. These collaborative grants were awarded on the basis of the throughput of my research group.
