Dr. Rekha Verma received her PhD degree from the Department of Electronic Systems Engineering of Indian Institute of Science Bangalore-India in December 2013. Her thesis on "Investigation of electro-thermal and thermoelectric effects in carbon nanomaterials" was awarded the prestigious TechnoInventor Award 2014 by India Electronics and Semiconductor Association (IESA). She obtained her MTech in VLSI Design from Banasthali University, Banasthali-India and BE in Electronics and Communication Engineering from University of Rajasthan, Jaipur-India in the year 2009 and 2003 respectively.

She joined the department of electronics and communication engineering at Indian Institute of Information Technology Allahabad as Assistant Professor in December 2014. She has around four years of teaching experience at Jodhpur National University-Jodhpur, Rajasthan. Dr. Verma worked as M.Tech. intern at Tech. R&D division of ST Microelectronic Pvt. Ltd., Gr Noida-India during July 2008-April 2009 where she worked on memory compilers. She also worked as Project engineer at the department of electrical engineering of IIT Kanpur during Feb 2010-July 2010. Afterwards, she joined Nano Scale Device Research Laboratory at IISc Bangalore in August 2010 as Senior Research Fellow and completed her PhD from the same laboratory in December 2013. She was appointed as Institute`s Research Associate at the same lab and also at the department of Physics of IISc Bangalore after successful completion of her PhD.




April 06, 2019: Our work on exciton-phonon couplings in hexagonal monolayer boron nitride is accepted in Physical Review B. In this work, we demonstrated how light is absorbed in monolayer BN to give brightest and strongest photo-luminescence.

July 13, 2018: Our work on exciton-phonon couplings got accepted in Physical Review B. In this work, we demonstrated how exciton couples with phonon in monolayer WSe2 to give brightest and strongest luminescence.
