Presenting the crafted Pyruvate Aldolase mimic at the 3MT competition, Japan,2023
I come from Uttar-Bhatora, a small farming village in West Bengal, India. I earned a Bachelor's degree in Chemistry Honors from Vidyasagar University in 2015 and later completed my Master's degree at the Indian Institute of Science Education & Research (IISER) Kolkata, India. Currently, I am working on my Ph.D. at the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology (OIST), Japan.
My research journey spans diverse realms in chemistry and biology. During my 3-year MS at IISER-Kolkata, I explored the topics Supramolecular Interactions, Liposomal Drug Delivery, Visible Light Photocatalysis in Organic Synthesis.
My 5-year Ph.D. at OIST, Japan, broadened my expertise in Protein Engineering, Quantum Materials, and Enantioselective Synthesis. Currently, I'm at OIST's "Chemistry and Chemical Bioengineering Unit," investigating the potential of pyruvates as nucleophiles in non-enzymetic condition, using designed organic catalysts. Explore the intersections of my multidisciplinary research at the forefront of chemistry and bioengineering.
