Associate Professor

I did my Ph.D. from Indian Assocaition for the Cultivation of Science (IACS), Kolkata in Polymer Science unit. My group is broadly working in the field of Soft matter. Specifically, we work on the development of stimuli responsive Natural product based hydrogels and metallohydrogels for their prospective applications in Health and Environment; Development of photoluminescent materials based on multi-level Forster Resonance Energy Transfer in soft system based self-assemblies for their prospective light harvesting applications; understanding shape transtions of self-assemblies of surfactants by understanding changes in the concentrations of various ions, water and neutral molecules at micelle-water interface and ithe protein topology at the memberane-water interface using Novel chemical trapping method. Moroever, we are utilizing the novel Chemical Kinetic Method to probe the distribution of antioxidants within the interface of micelle-water/emulsion-water systems for understanding the factors that affect the antioxidant activity as a function of composition of interfacial regions in these se;lf-assebled systems relevant for numerous food formulations.
