Ranjini graduated with a Master’s degree in Photonics (first class with distinction, first rank) from Cochin University of Science and Technology in India. She obtained her PhD in Physical Chemistry (laser spectroscopy) with a summa cum laude from the University of Basel, Switzerland in 2011. She then spent 2.5 years conducting postdoctoral research in femtosecond nonlinear optics and trace gas detection technologies at the University of Bern, Switzerland, and University College Cork, Ireland respectively. The project on cavity-based trace gas sensor development which she led at Cork was part of the highly recognised Marie Curie Intra European Fellowship for independent research. The written proposal was one of the top 600 selected from the 3302 proposals submitted for the year 2011.
