Suvra S. Laha completed his B.Sc. with Honours in Physics from University of Calcutta in 2007. He then joined the Indian Institute of Technology Guwahati (IITG) to pursue Master studies in Physics (2007-2009). His M.Sc. thesis at IITG under Prof. Alika Khare primarily dealt with the study of structural and optical properties of TiO2 nanoparticles produced via pulsed laser ablation technique. In Fall 2010, Laha moved to the Department of Physics & Astronomy at Wayne State University in Detroit and started working with Prof. Gavin Lawes. His PhD research at Physics@Wayne was primarily focused in understanding dipolar interactions, relaxation dynamics, exchange-bias effects occurring in magnetic nanoparticles and their applications in health and disease. The biomedical aspect of the research was conducted under the guidance of Prof. Bhanu P. Jena in the NanoBioScience Institute, Department of Physiology at the Wayne State University School of Medicine. During his PhD, Laha had also worked with Dr. Joseph Rakowski from the Department of Radiation Oncology at Karmanos Cancer Institute, where he was primarily involved in investigating dose enhancement studies with gold nanoparticle films. Prior to joining IIT Genova, Laha gained postdoctoral training (2015-2016) in the NanoBioScience Institute at the Wayne State University School of Medicine under the academic supervision of Prof. Bhanu P. Jena.
