Welcome on board – Welcome to Leibniz IPHT

Keshav Kumar Jha

On 6th May, Keshav Kumar Jha started his PhD project at Leibniz IPHT. The aim of his research is to evaluate photo-induced excited state properties of molecular sensors using ultrafast time-resolved spectroscopy and fluorescence spectroscopy.

Keshav did his bachelors education in Electrical engineering from West Bengal University of Technology, Kolkata, India. Consequently, masters in Optoelectronics and Laser Technology from Cochin University of Science and Technology, Kochi. To pursue his master thesis, Keshav joined APML lab under Prof. Varun Raghunathan at Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, India. During his master thesis, Keshav developed a multiphoton microscope to image and characterize nanostructures and biological samples. Further, he worked as a research assistant in the same lab and studied ovarian cancer cells to observe how SKOV3 and OVCAR3 cells change the collagen environment around it. Keshav’s work under Prof. Raghunathan led to authorship of two international conference publications and coauthorship of a journal publication. Personally, he likes to learn and teach Yoga and meditation.
