Shankar Jella                    – DST Indo-Spanish Project (June 2013 – Dec 2013)

My first encounter with chemistry has been done in my S.S.C (Zilla Parishath High School, Old Ramanthapur, Hyd) and I tried to cope with it in my +2 level (Vishwa Chaitanya Jr. College, Tarnaka, Sec-bad) and as a fact I tried to enjoy flavour of chemistry during my B.Sc (Dr.B.R.Ambedkar Dr.College, Musheerabad, Hyd). And finally making chemistry as a base my life started as an M.Sc student. (IIT Madras, Chennai). Apart from chemistry I am kind of obsessed with Tennis because I love it more than anything.
