I am glad to introduce myself Dr. Sudhagar Pitchaimuthu from Swansea, UK.
I am alumni of our Kongunadu Arts and Science College (KASC), where I did my M.Phil (2002-2003) and Ph.D (2004-2009) in Physics department under the guidance of Dr. R. Sathyamoorthi. Currently, I am working as a Research Fellow in University of Exeter, UK....
My hearty congrats to your leadership for advancing our standing on the national ranking - 19th position in best colleges of India ranking list accredited by MHRD. Indeed, I was thrilled to see that we are recognized as one of the best research infrastructure (3rd rank) in India. My warm wishes to all the College Governing Board Members, the staff, and students who fetched this great recognition and honor.
In this occasion, I greatly appreciate the college administration for providing an excellent research infrastructure and facilities to work 24/7 in the Physics Research Lab at KASC. With this support, I have got the visiting research fellowship from Hanyang University, South Korea (2008-2009) during my PhD – which gave me a wonderful platform to design my research career. With all these experiences, I have received prestigious JSPS fellowship from Japan Government (2013-2015) and most recently, I have received the very prestigious and highly competitive position as Rising Star from Welsh Government (~0.7 million pounds for 5 years). I am pleased to share that through this Rising Star award, I am going to start my independent research group within College of Engineering, Swansea University, UK.
As a KASC alumni, I feel extremely delighted and proud of our national ranking. I wish our institute every success in future and hope KASC will keep producing brilliant talents in both arts and science field.
If I get a chance, I would like to talk to you by phone based on your appointment.
Again, my warm wishes and thanks to you Madam.
