Educational Background:

  • Ph. D (Chemistry) – IIT, Kharagpur, awarded in 2005
  • Professional Background:

  • 2010 to Present: Visiting Faculty Fellow, SNBNCBS, Kolkata
  • 2007-2010: Post Doctoral Fellow, SNBNCBS, Kolkata
  • 2006-2007: Post Doctoral Fellow, SINP, Kolkata
  • 2004 - 2006: Post doctoral Fellow, University of Alabam, USA
  • Important awards and fellowship of academies:

  • Recipient of ‘Prof. A. K. Dey award’ from the ‘Indian Chemical Society’
  • Main area of work

  • My study mainly focuses on the synthesis, characterization and various applications of metallic and magnetic nanoparticles including hyperthermia therapy and cell culture. I have Synthesized different kind of nanomaterials like CoPt, FePt, cobalt ferrite, nickel ferrite, Fe2O3, Fe3O4, ZnO, iron core gold shell, Nickel, gold, silver conducting polymer etc. Recently I am concentrating on ‘Synthesis of DNA and micelles templated magnetic nanoparticles and their necessary surface functionalization for biomedical application’ funded by the Department of Science and Technology (DST), New Delhi. Particles I have prepared have potentiality in technological and biological applications in the manufacturing of data storage device, in Hyperthermia therapy for cancer treatment, in biosensor fabrication etc. I am trying to fabricate one instrument which will be useful for hyperthermia therapy applying those nanoparticles.
