Recently, Swetha co-authored a paper with Dr. Seal and Rameech McCormack, entitled "Biocompatible Functionalization of Nanoceria and Retention of Catalytic Properties Post Ion-Particle Interaction." In November, that paper was presented at the Sustainable Nanotechnology Organization Conference in Santa Barbara, CA.
