Subhajit Chakraborty pursuing Ph.D.

I was born and brought up in West Bengal, India. I pursued my undergraduation (BSc) from University of Calcutta and postgraduation (MSc) from IIT Kharagpur. I joined the group as a PhD student in September, 2020. My research interest lies in the development of heterogeneous catalyst for CO2 reduction and solid state structural chemistry. Besides that my other interest includes playing cricket, voiceovers, music and crafts new things.

Soumi Mondal pursuing Ph.D.

I have come from Guskara, a small town in West Bengal. I did my schooling in East West Model School in Talit. After completing B.Sc. in Chemistry in Vivekananda Mahavidyalaya in Burdwan, I pursued M.Sc. in Visva-Bharati university, Shantiniketan. To quench the thirst for science, I joined Ph.D. in materials chemistry where I am currently working on catalyst design for its applications in room temperature fuel cells and water splitting. Apart from research, I have an inclination for singing, penning poems and photography.  

Devender Goud G pursuing Ph.D.

Currently pursuing Ph.D. under the supervision of Prof. Sebastian C. Peter at New Chemistry Unit, Jawaharlal Nehru Centre For Advanced Scientific Research (JNCASR). Received my Integrated MSC degree from the School of Chemistry, University of Hyderabad in 2018. Research interests include the design, synthesis, and characterization of nanostructured materials and their applications in energy storage and conversion.

Bitan Ray pursuing Ph.D.

I have joined the group as a Ph.D. student back in July 2018. Majorly my work here in JNCASR is dedicated to the field of Carbon dioxide capture, and its utilization towards value-added products via thermochemical pathway. My research interest involves CO2 capture from both point source and direct air, and its subsequent conversion driven by heterogeneous catalysis, and gas phase reaction in both flow reactor as well as batch reactor. I have completed my post-graduation from IIT (ISM) Dhanbad in 2018 and graduation from Hooghly Mohsin College in 2016. Favourite pastime includes music and literature. Love to explore new places and new cultures.

Debabrata Bagchi pursuing Ph.D.

I was born and raised at Karimpur in West Bengal. I completed my B. Sc. at Ramakrishna Mission Vidyamandira, Belur Math and pursued M. Sc. from Indian Institute of Technology, Madras. The quest for science I developed since my childhood instigated me to invest my entire career in exploring the mysteries of science. This urged me to opt for doing Ph.D. in Chemistry, specifically in materials chemistry where the implementation is towards the benevolent nature. Currently, I am working on designing catalyst materials and mechanistic investigation for electrochemical conversion of carbon dioxide to valuable fuels and chemicals. Besides research, I love playing cricket and watching movies.

Nilutpal Dutta pursuing Ph.D.

I am from Assam. I have completed by B.Sc. from Tezpur University, Assam and completed my M.Sc. from IIT Hyderabad. My passion to learn the subject and doing research motivated me to pursue PhD in chemistry. I have joined the group in September 2021 after qualifying CSIR-JRF. Besides the passion for chemistry, I love to play football and travel with my friends
