Dr. Deepa Seetharaman graduated from Sri Sathya Sai Institute of Higher Learning with a B.Sc. (Hons.) in Physics in 1997. After completing her M.Sc. in Physics from Mumbai University in 1999, with First rank, she returned to serve her Alma Mater as a Lecturer in Physics in the same year. She qualified in the UGC-CSIR NET examination for Junior Research Fellowship in the year 2000. She completed her Ph.D. research in the area of Nuclear Electron-Gamma Spectroscopy in 2010 from SSSIHL. Dr. Deepa Seetharaman is currently serving as the Head, Department of Physics, Sri Sathya Sai Institute of Higher Learning.
In addition to her teaching duties at the Institute, she has been pursuing research for the last twelve years. Although she started her research career in the area of Nuclear Structure and Decay, she is also currently working on Nanomaterials – specifically the synthesis of nanocrystalline ferrites for various applications.
Areas of Teaching
