Nandita Abhyankar is a CNST/UMD Postdoctoral Researcher in the Nanoscale Imaging and Spectroscopy group. She received an M.Sc. in Inorganic Chemistry from Pune University, and a doctorate in Physical Chemistry from Florida State University. Her doctoral research involved magnetic resonance (EPR and NMR) studies to elucidate the nature of the paraelectric/ferroelectric phase transition in perovskite-like metal-organic multiferroics. She also developed a microwave-assisted protocol for rapid synthesis of these materials. Nandita is working with Veronika Szalai on developing microresonators for high-sensitivity CW and pulsed EPR spectroscopy of nanoscale materials.
