Dr. Parimaladevi Palanisamy
Dr Parimaladevi Palanisamy is currently working as Marie Skłodowska-Curie Postdoctoral Fellow with the PMTC in the Department of Chemical Sciences, Bernal Institute, University of Limerick.
Dr. Palanisamy earned her BSc, MSc & PhD degrees in Physics from Bharathiar University, India. Following her PhD, she worked as a postdoctoral fellow at IIT Gandhinagar India, as a Research Assistant at University of Limerick and postdoctoral fellow at University of Antwerp Belgium and
Most recently, Dr Palanisamy was awarded a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Postdoctoral Fellowship, through PMTC where she is currently working on a research project CRYSTASSEMB: Novel techniques for the production of API nanoparticles via self assembling in supersaturated solutions supported by Dr. Vasanth Kannuchamy and Innopharma Technology.
Dr. Palanisamy's research area focuses on crystallization, co-crystallization, liquid-liquid phase separation, polymorphism, non-photochemical laser-induced nucleation and crystal growth technology of active pharmaceutical ingredients. Her aim is to develop this new technology plus upscale the technique from lab-scale to at least pilot-plant scale level and her main research interest is to develop a new technology to produce nanoparticles of APIs in batch and continuous mode via a novel self-assembling process at conditions where solutions usually tend to nucleate.
Dr. Palinasamy has published 8 research articles in different journals, including:
- Materials Science and Engineering C (IF – 5.88),
- Journal of Food Engineering (IF – 4.499) and one among them has been recognized as ‘HOT article for March 2014’ by Crystal Engineering Communication, RSC.
- Her research articles are cited more than 70 times with h-index – 6 and i-10-index – 4.
