Suchandrima is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Department of Engineering Science and a member of Trinity College. She has a bachelors degree from National University of Singapore, focusing on electrical engineering and specifically on optoelectronic materials.
After working on product engineering at Advanced Micro Devices for a year, she went on to do a masters degree at ETH Zurich on biomedical engineering, centring specifically on biomechanics. Subsequently she spent a year as a research associate in Singapore General Hospital, working on developing high-resolution optical coherence tomography imaging tools for biological tissues. In 2016, she joined the department as a DPhil student associated with Mansfield College.
Her research uses new synchrotron X-Ray diffraction techniques along with atomistic simulations, electron microscopy and numerical modelling to study the changes in material properties due to irradiation damage, with the aim of developing armour components for future fusion reactors.
