SMALL THINGS AMUSE GREAT MINDS
“If I want to be a successful leader, I need to lead by example.”
- Prof Suprakas Sinha Ray
As chief researcher in the field of polymer nanocomposites at the National Centre for Nano-structured Materials at the CSIR, Suprakas is not only a thought-leader but also a brilliant team manager. Suprakas deals with molecules thousands of times smaller than the width of a human hair, fiddling with their structure to make them stronger, lighter and even more fire-resistant. Rated one of the top 100 chemists in the world, Suprakas is a great asset to the CSIR and industry in South Africa.
Bright young scientists behind ideas that work.
