Personal profile

Research profile

Shajeth Srigengan is a postdoctoral researcher in the Stimuli-responsive Functional Materials and Devices group under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Dirk Broer. Shajeth works on electric-field actuation of liquid crystal elastomers for applications such as touch-screens and haptics.

Academic background

Shajeth started his academic career in 2011 studying Physics at the University of Manchester (Manchester, UK). In 2015 he got his integrated Masters in Physics degree with a research project in liquid crystals with Prof. Dr. Helen Gleeson, and a research project in medical physics with Dr. Mark Dickinson. Afterwards he moved to Leeds (UK) and started his PhD at the University of Leeds investigating the novel phase behaviour in bent-core liquid crystals and their mixtures, under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Helen Gleeson and Dr. Mamatha Nagaraj. He got his PhD in 2019. He currently works as a postdoctoral researcher in the Stimuli-responsive Functional Materials and Devices group.
