Satyabrata Si

Associate Professor

Dr Si has obtained his Master degree in chemistry from Ravenshaw College (Utkal University) and completed his PhD in Chemistry from Indian Association for the Cultivation of Science (Jadavpur University), Kolkata. He has an excellent track record throughout his academic career. He is the recipient of CSIR NET JRF fellowship for pursuing his PhD degree as well as fellowship from SNSF Switzerland and CNRS France for postdoctoral research. He has also awarded the prestigious Ramanujan Fellowship from DST, Govt. of India for five years (2013-2018). Till now he has over 13 years of research/teaching experience in various R&D laboratories and universities. His current research includes nanoscience and materials chemistry for application in biology, energy storage and environmental prospects. He has so far published many research articles in international peer reviewed journals of high repute to his credit and many more on the pipe line. Currently, he teaches in the School of Chemical Technology and School of Biotechnology, KIIT Deemed to be University, Bhubaneswar.
