Sanjay Kumar obtained his M. Sc and Ph. D degrees in Chemistry from IIT Kanpur under the supervision of Professor N Sathyamurthy. He was a postdoctoral Fellow from 1994 – 98 at University of Rome “La Sapienza” supported by EU & Max Planck Research Society Fellowships. He came back in 1998 as a Visiting Fellow at Atomic & Molecular Physics, TIFR, Mumbai. He joined the Department of Chemistry, IIT Madras as an Assistant Professor in 1999, became Associate Professor in 2006 and Professor in 2009. He has been also a Visiting Faculty at Department of Physical and Theoretical Chemistry, University of Bonn, Germany.
