Kizhakeyil Lukose Sebastian
He is one of the leading theoretical chemists of India working on the applications of quantum mechanics and statistical mechanics in chemistry and chemical physics. The topics studied include molecular devices, nanotechnology and surfaces, molecular ratchets, equilibrium and non-equilibrium statistical mechanics of polymers, biophysical chemistry and chemical dynamics. Prof. Sebastian has authored more than 90 papers on various aspects of theoretical chemistry, chemical physics and polymer physics.
Awards and Honors 
- Fellow of Indian Academy of Sciences, the Indian National Science Academy.
- Shanti Swarup Bhatnagar Prize for Science and Technology in Chemical Science by the Government of India.
- Swadeshi Sastra Puraskar (1996).
- J. C. Bose National Fellowship by the Department of Science & Technology (DST) (2008-2013).

His research topics include path integral representation of Fractional Brownian motion, ring closing opening dynamics in polymers, first passage time calculation in phase space, energy transfer between molecule and graphene, quantum coherence etc. He introduced what is known as the kink mechanism for the translocation of long chain molecule through a nano-pore. In other words Kramers problem for the long chain molecule.
