Personal profile


Varghese Swamy is currently working as Associate Professor in the Mechanical Engineering Discipline

Research interests

  • Nanoscale materials for “energy” (photovoltaics, fuel additives), “green” (photocatalysis), bio (imaging and drug delivery), and device (sensors, photodetectors) applications
  • Advanced characterisations: size, shape, and strain of nanomaterials; nanomechanical properties
  • Computational modelling of mineral, metal, and ceramic systems
  • Engineered materials under extreme conditions (stress/temperature/size/chemistry: corrosion)

Monash teaching commitment

  • ENG1002 - Engineering Design: Cleaner, Safer, Smarter
  • MEC3459 - Materials Selection for Engineering Design
  • MEC4802 - Sustainable Engineering and Design with Nanomaterials
