Biography Dr. Vinoth Ramalingam is currently a Chancellor's Fellow in the School of Engineering, Robert Gordon University (RGU). Prior to joining RGU, he held couple of post-doctoral positions that includes Energy for Future (E4F) Fellowship (prestigious fellowship awarded by Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions and Fundación Iberdrola España under Marie-Curie Co-Fund Scheme) at the University of Strathclyde and a Postdoctoral fellow position at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST), Saudi Arabia.

He is an experienced and accomplished researcher, with over 6 years of postdoctoral research experience. He has published around 30 peer-reviewed publications in high ranked international journals including the prestigious journals Advanced Materials, Advanced Energy Materials, ACS Nano, ACS Energy Letters, Nano Energy, etc. He holds two international patents. He is a Review Editor in several international journals including Frontiers in Materials, Frontiers in Electronics and Frontiers in Fuels.

His research focus on innovative catalyst materials development, device fabrication and testing for solar driven energy conversion applications to achieve sustainable fuels and chemicals. This include green hydrogen production from water, value added fuels and chemicals feedstock generation from carbon dioxide utilisation and green ammonia synthesis from nitrogen. His research aims to accelerate the renewable energy transition to support the future net-zero target.
