Presently I am working as a Post Doctoral Research Fellow at Dept of Chemical Engineering, University of Malaya, Malaysia on soil and groundwater treatment technologies. Currently I have published 12 articles in Q1 and Q2 journals, with a total Google Scholar citation of 300+ and an h-index of 6.
Graduated with Chemistry (H) from St Xavier’s College, Kolkata. Obtained M.Sc. in Environmental Science in 2007 from University of Kalyani (India). I completed M.Tech degree on “Safety & Occupational Health Engineering” (6-semester course) from Bengal Engineering and Science University (BESU), Shibpur (India). I recently completed PhD on contaminated soil remediation from Chemical Engineering Department, University of Malaya, Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia) in April 2014.
Motivated & adaptable researcher with a thorough approach to soil and water treatment processes, I have been responsible for conducting lab based as well as field based research work in India and Malaysia, in collaboration with different European organizations. Employed by University of Malaya since 2010, my project experience has primarily been in-situ groundwater treatment and laboratory based soil washing process. I have experience in report writing, preparation of scientific and technical reports, proposal preparation and design of experiments. I have detailed academic knowledge regarding HSE through my two Masters Degrees in these fields of study. I have passed NEBOSH IGC certification in February 2015.
I served as Project Team Leader in an international project worth USD 200,000 at Ramakrishna Vivekananda Mission, Barrackpore. My job was to ensure the ultimate success of the project which involved installation of 6 Subterranean Arsenic Removal (SAR) plants in rural Bengal with help from a consortium of researchers from UK, Germany, Spain & the Netherlands. The project (DM 06-880), was funded by the World Bank, Washington DC, USA (www.insituarsenic.org).
Currently, I have strong research collaborations with Heriot-Watt University Edinburgh, Air Kelantan Sdn Bhd (state water supply company of Kelantan), Bright Green Energy Foundation Bangladesh, Bengal Engineering and Science University Shibpur (IIESTS), Geology Dept UM and Civil Engg Dept UM.
