Professor Venky Venkatesan directs the NanoCore Research Center at the National University of Singapore. He holds a PhD from the University of New York and Bell Laboratories (USA) and an MSc and a BSc degree from the Indian Institute of Technology in Kanpur (India). Prior to taking up his current appointment, he has been a Physicist and manager with Bell Labs and Bellcore and with the Center for Superconductivity Research at the University of Maryland, College Park. He also founded the Surface Center at Rutgers University where he was a Professor from 1985 to 1990.
Professor Mark Blamire heads the Device Materials group at the University of Cambridge (UK). His research is based on the study of novel materials or new materials combinations for potential device applications. These materials include metals, oxides, nitrides with properties which include superconductivity, magnetism and ferroelectricity.
