Prof. R Gowrishankar graduated with a B.Sc. (Hons.) in Physics in 1997 and completed his M.Sc. in Physics in 1999, both from Sri Sathya Sai Institute of Higher Learning. Joining the Department of Physics at the same institution in July 1999, he initially dedicated his efforts to teaching. Subsequently, in 2006, he embarked on a Ph.D. journey, culminating in the successful completion of his doctoral thesis, “Trace element studies on Diabetic Disorders using PIXE,” in 2009, all conducted at SSSIHL.
A dedicated and passionate educator, Prof. Gowrishankar actively participates in ongoing research across various domains, including Nuclear Structure studies, Materials Science, and Photonics. Currently serving as the Dean of Academic Affairs at SSSIHL, he continues to contribute significantly to both teaching and research.
