Rama Kant obtained B.Sc. (1983) and M.Sc. (1986) from University of Delhi. He was awarded PhD (1993), in the area of theoretical electrochemistry from the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore under guidance of Professor S. K. Rangarajan, FNA, FASc, FTWAS in the Department of Inorganic and Physical Chemistry. He was awarded Dr. Srinivasa Rao Krishnamurty Best Thesis Medal in the area of Electrochemistry and Electrochemical Engineering (1994-95). His first postdoctoral research training was done under guidance of a Nobel Laureate, Professor P. G. de Gennes at College de France (Paris) and, also another with Professor T. C. B. McLeish, FRS, at University of Leeds, in the area of Polymer Physics. He worked at Albert-Ludwigs University, Freiburg, Pennsylvania State University and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, before returning to India. He joined Department of Chemistry, University of Delhi as Reader (2003), Associate Professor (2006) and Professor (2009) and Senior Professor (2019).\r\n\r\nAcademic and Research Achievements: Professor Rama Kant research interests include the development of Mathematical Theories and Experiments on Complex Systems in Electrochemistry and Polymers. He has pioneered and extensively developed difficult research area of theories for the Electrochemistry on Rough, Porous, Heterogeneous and Stepped Metal Electrodes. His significant contributions are derivation of (more than 200) fundamental equations for electrochemistry of disordered (viz. atomic stepped and nano scale curved metals) and nano-micro-structured electrodes, which led to many novel equations and generalization of several well known classical equations in fundamental electrochemistry. His contributions to knowledge lead to the fundamental understanding of dynamics of electric double layer, electron transfer and coupled electrode kinetics of rough and fractal electrodes, and their transient responses, viz. chronoamperometry, impedance, chronocoulometry, chronoabsorptiometry, pulse voltammetries and admittance voltammetry. Recently he has developed novel modular theoretical approach for the impedance spectroscopy of complex electrochemical systems and devices. He has guided research work of many PhD students, Postdoctoral students and MPhil students.\r\n\r\nAwards and Honours: Professor Rama Kant is elected as a Fellow of INSA (2022), Indian Academy of Sciences (2015), awarded CRSI Bronze Medal (2015) and Acharya J.C. Ghosh Memorial Medal (2016) in recognition of his contributions to Fundamental Electrochemistry. He is recipient of many international fellowships, viz. EPSRC (Britain) fellowship, Ministry of Foreign Affairs (France) fellowship, University of Freiburg (Germany) fellowship etc.
