Meet the Author

Dr. S. Devanarayanan graduated from the University College, Trivandrum (M.Sc, 1963) and Indian of Science (Ph.D., 1970), and D.Sc. (USA). He had a brilliant academic career throughout with a start at the IISC Bangalore, and he taught at the University of Kerala (1971-2000), where finally served as Professor & HOD (1993-2000). He was Associate professor at the Univ. PR, USA (1989-91). He is credited with over 80 research papers. Some 20 students have completed Ph.D's and M.Phil's under his Supervision. He has been member of a dozen of learned societies, including the Amer. Chem. Soc. He was in several Committees and Boards of Studies, Examinations, Selection Boards of different Universities, and State level and National level Tests. Prof. Devanarayanan has served as a Member of the Padma Ramachandran Commission, appointed by the Govt. of Kerala, during Oct. 2000-Feb. 2001, to examine the functioning of the Univ. of Kerala during 1985-2000.
