Welcome to Nano-Biointerface Research
Ramesh Raliya is a Research Scientist at Department of Energy, Environmental and Chemical Engineering, Washington University in St. Louis, USA. Prior to this, he was Research Associate at National Agriculture Innovation Project of Nanotechnology at Central Arid Zone Research Institute, Jodhpur (An Institute of Indian Council of Agriculture Research, Government of India).
Raliya’s research expertise is in the product and technology development with the aim of reducing fertilizer runoff while improving sustainable agriculture. A. Develop a fertilizer and its delivery techniques that has nearly 100% use efficiency so zero runoff; B. Climate-Smart Agriculture: Nanoscale composite formulation showing spatial and temporal release profile of nutrient, pesticides, and water. C. Energy efficient recovery, recycle and reuse of nutrients and water from waste-water; D. Integration of data science and artificial intelligence for precision and sustainable agriculture.
Dr. Raliya developed methods for synthesizing novel inorganic and organic nanomaterials with independently controlled properties. These nanomaterials have been used to study their impact on plant nutrition, plant protection, biomedical uses including drug delivery, therapeutics, and imaging, water chemistry, energy storage materials, sensors, and environmental interactions.
At Washington University in St. Louis, Dr. Raliya associated with Nano Research Facility, and Aerosol and Air Quality Research Laboratory of School of Engineering & Applied Science, and Center for Multiple Myeloma Nanotherapy of Washington University School of Medicine.
Dr. Raliya has interdisciplinary academic and research background. He earned his bachelor degree in Bioscience and Master degree in Biotechnology from Department of Botany, Jai Narain Vyas University, Jodhpur. He earned Ph.D. degree from Central Arid Zone Research Institute, Jodhpur, India.
