Dr. Swayamsiddha Kar teaches topics in Organic Chemistry and Spectroscopy. Along with teaching, he is passionately involved in research activities. He graduated with a B.Sc. (Hons.) in Chemistry in the year 2013, followed by M.Sc. in Chemistry from Sri Sathya Sai Institute of Higher Learning in 2015. He then obtained his doctorate degree at the Sri Sathya Sai Institute of Higher Learning under the supervision of Prof. Nageswara Rao Golakoti, in the year 2020.
He has worked as an intern under Dr. Srinivas Oruganti, Director, Dr. Reddy’s Institute of Life Sciences, Hyderabad and Dr. Srinivas Nanduri, Professor, Department of Chemical Sciences at NIPER Hyderabad. He has also been trained in NMR by Prof. Shinya Ohki, at Japan Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (JAIST) under the Sakura Science exchange program conducted by the JST (Japan Science and Technology Agency) in 2019. He is currently an Assistant Professor at the Department of Chemistry.
His research work is primarily focused on synthesis and semi-synthesis of organic compounds and he has a good working knowledge of various instruments like NMR, GC-MS, LC-MS, HPLC, etc.The research work carried out in the field of the spiro-compounds has led him to file two Patents:
