Biography

Pradeep N Perera received his BSc (in Chemistry) from University of Colombo, Sri Lanka and completed his PhD in Physical Chemistry at Purdue University with emphasis in Raman micro-spectroscopy, Optics and Chemometrics in 2008. His research interests include developing new analytical procedures for chemical systems by combining advance data mining techniques and vibrational spectroscopies and understanding chemical and physical interactions at molecular level with vibrational spectroscopy. As a Project Scientist at EFRC, he is currently working on employing Raman micro-spectroscopy/imaging to understand chemistry and physics of sc-CO2 and brine during geologic carbon sequestration at nano and submicron scale.
