Teaching Experience

I joined W.B.E.S. in August, 1992 as Lecturer in Barasat Govt. College. At present I am engaged as Associate Professor in Chemistry in this college with effect from July, 2006. in Applied Chemistry with specialization in Oil Technology.

I was engaged in teaching Industrial Chemistry for more than fifteen years. Presently I am teaching Physical and Analytical Chemistry in the UG level. My teaching chapters include gas, chemical kinetics, electrochemistry, conductance, etc. in Physical Chemistry and most of the syllabus in Analytical Chemistry of C.U.

Research

Post-doctoral research work for two years on Application of Enzymatically Extracted and Refined oil at Department of Oil Technology, C.U.
