Dr. Sudharsan Pandiyan is currently working as as an Application Scientist (Materials Science) at Schrödinger, Inc., Bangalore, India. He is specialized in materials and composites focusing in molecular modeling. He obtained his B.S. and M.Sc. degrees in 2003 and 2005 from St. Joseph’s College, Trichy, respectively. He continued his postgraduate studies in molecular modeling at University of Savoie, France and Max-Planck-Institute for Polymer Research, Germany as he received his Ph.D. degree in 2009. His postdoctoral studies started with a year (2010-2011) at Department of Physical Chemistry, University of Paris (South), France. He continued working as a numerical simulation researcher at Scientific Instrumentation Group, LIST, Luxembourg (2011-2012), a senior project scientist at Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur, India (2012-2013), and a researcher at Polymer Chemistry and Material Division, Department of Chemistry, KU-Leuven, Belgium (2013-2016).

Presentation Abstract

“Schrödinger – Material Science Suite”

Sudharsan Pandiyan and Raghu Rangaswamy

Schrodinger INC is pioneer in developing applications for molecular simulations. Reducing computational costs and development of complex algorithms allow researchers to apply molecular simulations to complex problems in various branches of materials science such as aerospace, oil recover, optoelectronics, etc.,

Understanding the molecular level structure-property relationship allows the researchers to build novel materials for applications under consideration. Schrdoginer INC has been collaborating with more than 2500 research groups around the world to achieve their research goals using molecular simulations as a tool.

In this presentation, we will show a brief introduction about different types of simulations that can be carried out using Schrodinger Materials Science Suite. In the second part, we will show the exclusive case-studies on the virtual screening of materials for desired optoelectronic properties and solid/electrolyte interface additives and few examples of using molecular simulations to find solutions for real-life problems. Finally, we will conclude with how this package would directly assist you in your area of research.
