Dr. Vijay Kanawade received his M.Sc in Physics from Fergusson College, Pune in 2002 and M. Tech. in Atmospheric Physics from Savitribai Phule Pune University in 2004. He obtained his Ph.D. on "satellite remote sensing of carbon monoxide in the troposphere" from University of Leicester, UK in 2010. He is recipient of Marie-Curie Research Fellowship and FELIX award (2006). He worked as Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Kent State University, Ohio, USA (2010-2012), Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur (2012-2014) and Lund University, Sweden (2015). He then joined the Centre for Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences, School of Physics at University of Hyderabad as UGC-Assistant Professor in April 2016. His research interests are atmospheric new particle formation and growth, aerosol-induced changes in cloud, radiation, and climate, and air pollution. He has published more than 50 peer-reviewed articles (citations 1639 and h-index 25 as per Google-Scholar). He is currently serving as Editorial Board member of Indian Journal of Geophysical Union and Guest Associate Editor, Frontiers in Environmental Sciences.
