AM ESHADRI Professor, Materials Department, and Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry Co-Director, Materials Research Laboratory: An NSF MRSEC Address: Materials Research Laboratory, Room 3008 University of California, Santa Barbara, CA 93106-5121 USA Phone: (805) 893 6129 FAX: (805) 893 8797 email: seshadri@mrl.ucsb.edu internet: http://www.mrl.ucsb.edu/ seshadri Research vision Compositional control of structure-property relations in complex functional inorganic materials; enlarging the toolkit of techniques that enable such control. Education: 1990-1995 M.S. in Chemistry &

PhD in Solid State Chemistry, Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, India (with C. N. R. Rao FRS). PhD thesis titled Investigations on Fullerenes, Carbon Nanotubes, Onions and Small Gold Particles. 1986-1989 B.Sc. (Hons.) Chemistry, St. Stephens College, Delhi University, India. Employment: 2008–present Professor, Materials Department, and Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, UC Santa Barbara. 2006–2008 Associate Professor, Materials Department, and Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, UC Santa Barbara. 2002–2006 Assistant Professor, Materials Department, UC Santa Barbara.

1999–2002 Assistant Professor, Solid State and Structural Chemistry Unit, Indian Institute of Science. 1997–1999 Post-Doctoral Fellow with Professor Wolfgang Tremel at the Institut f ur Anorganische Chemie, Universit at Mainz, Germany: Magnetic and CDW chalcogenides, biomineralization, and electronic struc- ture of functional materials 1995–1996 Post-Doctoral Fellow with Professor Bernard Raveau at the Laboratoire CRISMAT, Caen, France: High- superconductors and CMR manganites 1989–1990 Pre-Doctoral Researcher in the Solid State and Structural Chemistry Unit, Indian Institute of Science: High-

copper- and bismuth-oxide superconductors. Research contributions Research efforts in the group are focused on the theme of developing structure – composition – property relations in functional inorganic materials. Contributions include the development of solvothermal routes for a variety of inorganic nanomaterials, understanding the r ole that lone pairs of non-bonding electrons in ions such as Pb 2+ and Bi 3+ play in inducing polar and ferroic (including multiferroic) behavior, under- standing the effects of structural topology in frustrating phase transitions in polar compounds, developing

template-free routes to porous and composite inorganic materials, developing new multifunctional magnets, understanding frustrated magnetism, and revealing the importance of oxide-stabilized noble metal ions in oxidation catalysis, with the concurrent development of model compounds thereof. Recent contributions include a better understanding of phosphors for solid-state white lighting, and the development of new phosphors. CV S EPTEMBER 21, 2014 1/3
