Rahul Raveendran Nair is a Professor of Materials Physics and hold a prestigious Royal Society University Research Fellowship.

The main scope of his research is the science and application of two-dimensional crystals and their modifications. His current research projects are studying molecular properties at extreme confinement, 2D materials functionalization, developing novel 2D materials-based membranes for water filtration, nanofiltration, gas separation and barrier coating, and proton conducting membranes for fuel cells.

His awards include a Leverhulme Early Career Fellowship from the Leverhulme Trust, a Young Scientist Award (2014) from the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics, and the Moseley Medal and Prize (2015) from the Institute of Physics. Thomson Reuters also selected him as a Highly Cited Researcher in 2016.
