What I would highlight Awarded the SNF grant by the Swiss National Science Foundation to pursue his Doctoral Studies at ETH Zurich, often rated as the best technological university in continental Europe (with 21 Nobel Prize winners in it’s alumni, Albert Einstein being the most prominent of them). Swayamjyoti has worked with several respectable researchers who are employed with ETH Zurich, Paul Scherrer Institut, Stanford University and University of Stuttgart during his Doctoral and Master’s research. His research interests are Atomistic and Ab-Initio Simulation and Modeling of Materials. Swayamjyoti has also represented his Master program at the EMA General Assemblies in Budapest (2011) and Prague (2012) as a programme representative. He has been instrumental in organising the venue for the 2013 EMA General Assembly in Barcelona by coordinating with UPC Barcelona.
