Dr. Swamy obtained MSc in General chemistry from the University of Hyderabad in 2009 and Ph.D. from the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) India, in the field of main group organometallics in 2014. After completion of the Ph.D., he has spent five years abroad as a post-doctoral fellow in the area of supramolecular (host-guest) and organometallics (metal-based asymmetric catalysis) chemistry. In the first post-doc, he was involved in the design and synthesis of supramolecular architectures for their desired applications. During the second post-doctoral position he was involved in (i) the development of chiral ruthenium polypyridyl complexes for the formation of molecular cages for photocatalysis and (ii) using novel carbene oxazoline metal complexes for asymmetric hydrogenation of olefins, enamines, and ketones. Later, he joined as an Assistant professor in the department of chemistry, National Institute of Technology, Calicut in 2020. Currently, he works on the design and synthesis of supramolecular architecture for stabilizing main group elements as well as metal-based asymmetric catalysis. Further, he works on chemosensors for biologically important cations and anions.
