Dr. Abhijit Pramanick is an Assistant Professor at the City University of Hong Kong. He was awarded PhD in Materials Science and Engineering in 2009 from the University of Florida, Gainesville, for his work on dynamic electric-field-induced structural changes in ferroelectric ceramics. Subsequently, he moved to the Oak Ridge National Laboratory, where he developed different neutron scattering techniques to understand the microscopic origins of functional responses in ferroelectric and ferromagnetic materials. He has co-authored over 30 publications. He was awarded the prestigious Edward C. Henry Award by the American Ceramic Society in the years 2010 and 2012.
His current research interests include understanding composition-structure-property correlations in different ferroelectric and ferromagnetic materials that are used in smart technolgies and energy applications. For his studies, he uses advanced X-ray and neutron scattering techniques and multiscale modeling methods.
