Shamily Patibandla

Scientific Interests and Work

Design and synthesis of Polymers and polymer nanocomposites for different applications.

As a graduate researcher at the Jackson state University Dr. Patibandla was associated with the Nano science and colloidal chemistry in her interest to synthesize and characterize Nanoparticles and their composites. In the process, Dr. Patibandla gained expertise in related instrumentations and some biological techniques such as imaging, ELISA. Dr. Patibandla’s work at ASL revolves around the synthesis of new polymers and novel nanocomposites of functional nano materials for different applications (coatings, biomedical, health care, industrial, sensors etc.).


Dr. Shamily Patibandla joined the Institute for Shock Physics’ Applied Sciences Laboratory (ASL) after earning her Ph.D. in Chemistry from Jackson State University in 2022.  Dr. Patibandla’s graduate research involved design and developing novel nanomaterials (dot materials) and their composites for bioimaging and used different techniques to characterize novel composites for cancer imaging at early stages. Dr. Patibandla’s interdisciplinary research also resulted in designing of different nanomaterials with different shapes for the rapid diagnosis and detection of SARS-CoV-2 virus using different application systems within short period of time. She also performed various experiments using SERS spectroscopy to determine the time and surface sensitivity.
