|Ph.D (sc)||1990||Calcutta University||Physics (Topics:Coalescence
model analysis of complex
particle spectra from
energetic Heavy-Ion collision)
After passing my M.Sc Exam. I joined as a research scholar under Prof. Aparesh Chatterjee and was engaged in the construction of a 14 MeV(DT) neutron generator . On it's completion in June 1986,I joined the Laboratory for Nuclear Spectroscopy, Rudjer Boskovic Institute, Zagreb, Croatia to do research on Heavy Ion reaction mechanisms under Prof. N. Cindro. Returning to India on March 1989, I submitted my Ph.D thesis on the above topics for evaluation to Calcutta University. From Oct. 1990 to Oct.1995 I was a post-doc in Calcutta University. From oct.1995 I am working as a part-time faculty in the post- graduate and under-graduate sections of the Physics Department, Presidency College,Calcutta 700073. I was also a guest faculty in the Inter-University Consortium-DAEF,Calcutta 700091(session 2000). I was the Principal Investigator of a gamma spectroscopy project(no. A21) in the Nuclear Science Centre,N.Delhi.I am empanelled as a Counsellor for Physics in Indira Gandhi Open University (IGNOU). I am interested in space science and technology and its promotion in India. Currently I am the President and Director of the newly formed Kalpana Chawla centre for Space and Nano Sciences, Calcutta ( http://www.kccsns.netfirms.com/index.html ).I am life member of Indian Physics Association, Indian Physical Society,Astronautical Society of India,Indian Statistical Institute,Kolkata

From Oct.1995 I am taking courses on Electronics & Nuclear Instrumentation in the post-graduate and under- graduate section of the Physics Dept.,Presidency College, Calcutta 700073 as a part-time faculty. I was also a guest faculty (session 2000) in the initiation course for research scholars in the Inter-University Consortium-DAEF, Calcutta 700091. Currently I am an empanelled Counsellor for Physics in Indira Gandhi Open University (IGNOU)
I was the Treasurer of the Indian Physics Association, Calcutta Chapter from 1994 to 1996.After that it's Secretary.I was also the zonal representative in the National Executive Body. Currently I am it's Vice-Chairperson. I have held numerous Symposiums, workshops at regional and national level.I am interested in space science and technology and its promotion in India. Currently I am the President and Director of the newly formed Kalpana Chawla centre for Space and Nano Sciences, Calcutta ( http://www.kccsns.netfirms.com/index.html ).
I have been working as a Junior research associate under Prof. Nikola Cindro in Rudjer Boskovic Institute,Zagreb, Croatia from June 1986 - March 1989.
My hobbies are Photography, Computers,Travelling, Aquarium Fishes Animals specially Dogs and making Friends.
