Ram was married to Nayantara (Tara) Bhat with whom he would have celebrated their 31st anniversary on December 18th, 2023. Born in Shirali, India, he was the son of the late Narayan M. Bhat and Savitri Prabhu. He completed his PhD from National Chemical Laboratories in Pune, India in 1991 and then came to Ontario, Canada for a postdoctoral research position. He continued following his passion for chemistry and came to the United States in 1993 to pursue a second postdoctoral research position at Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois. He and Tara finally settled in the Greater Boston area in 1996. Ram worked in the chemical industry as a scientist and was most recently employed by Transcode Therapeutics. He was known for his very strong work ethic.
Some things he enjoyed in his leisure time were taking walks, gardening, as well as playing soccer and going on bike rides with his two children. Ram consistently enjoyed his evening tea, weekend afternoon naps, and catering to the sweet tooth he kindly passed on to his children. He looked forward to his yearly trips to India to see the rest of his family who were near and dear to his heart.
Besides his wife, he is survived by his son Rohan Bhat and his daughter Roshni Bhat of Billerica, MA, two brothers, four sisters, many nieces, nephews, and many grandnieces and grandnephews. Ram was predeceased by one brother and one sister.
