Ganesh Pokharel


Ganesh received his M.Sc from Thribhuvan University and MS from University of Memphis, Memphis, Tennessee. He worked on “synthesis and characterization of intermetallic compounds” on his MS thesis at The University of Memphis. Currently, he is working as a research assistant in prof. Mandrus’s lab.

He was awarded by colloquium award 2015 by the department of Physics and Astronomy, University of Tennessee, Knoxville. He is interested on the synthesis and characterization of new magnetic materials specially focusing on neutron scattering techniques. He has grown 3D single crystals many chalcogenide spinels like FeCr2S4, ZnCr2Se4, LiGaCr4S8, GeV4S8, GaV4S8, CuV2S4 etc.
