Dr. Honey John joined in Department of Polymer Science and Rubber Technology, Cochin University of Science and Technology as Professor on 1st August 2015. She took the charge of Hon. Director, Inter University Centre for Nanomaterials and Devices [IUCND] in 2017. She has worked as Assistant Professor and Associate professor in Indian Institute of Space Science and Technology [IIST], Thiruvananthapuram during 2007 to 2015. Dr. Honey John has done her M.Tech in Polymer Technology in Department of Polymer Science and Rubber Technology after her M.Sc. from M G University campus. Her doctoral studies are in an interdisciplinary topic in Department of Polymer and Rubber Technology, CUSAT, in collaboration with Department of Electronics, CUSAT. Her area of work includes synthesis, characterization and various property evaluations like electrical properties, microwave properties, nonlinear optical properties etc. She is well versed in the area of synthesis of polymers, nano materials, processing of nano materials etc. She also guided thesis works on ZnO/graphene hybrid systems, ZnO/CNT hybrid systems, and Polyaniline/graphene hybrid system for various applications. She has also guided many B.Tech / M.Tech projects/internship projects in the areas of DSSC, EMI shielding, nanohybrids etc. She has published many papers in reputed international journals related to photoconductivity, photocatalysis, electrical and electronics properties etc. Current Research work includes:

  1. Development of Co2 adsorbing polymer nanocomposites based on modified clay/graphene nanohybrids,
  2. Development of superhydrophilic coatings based on nanohybrids of semiconductor oxides with graphene/ MoS2/BN etc
  3. Tailoring the facets of nano semiconductor oxides for excellent photocatalysis and superhydrophilicity
  4. Development of piezoelectric and triboelectric nanogenerators based on nanoconducting polymer hybrids
  5. Development of super paramagnetic nano hybrids for Water purification and oil absorption applications
  6. Development of natural adhesives from natural oils
