Prabuddha is interested in developing novel Raman and Infrared techniques that can be implemented for characterizing various materials and biological applications. He received his master’s degree in physical chemistry from the Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay. His Ph.D. research with Prof. Martin Zanni at the University of Wisconsin-Madison included application of balanced heterodyned 2DIR spectroscopy for membrane protein characterization.
As a postdoctoral researcher in the Dlott Group at the University of Illinois he studied the chemistries of various electrolyte-electrode interfaces using broadband vibrational sum frequency generation (BBSFG) spectroscopy. Also with Prof. Bill Wilson at the Materials Research Laboratories he designed and constructed nonlinear imaging and IR laser ablation setups.
