Dr. Surajit Ghosh

(Assistant Professor)

Surajit Ghosh obtained B.Sc. in Chemistry (Hons.) from Vivekananda Mahavidyalaya (University of Burdwan, West Bengal) and M.Sc. from the Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur (IIT Kharagpur). He also completed Ph.D. from IIT Kharagpur in 2015 under the mentorship of Professor Nilmoni Sarkar. During Ph.D. research, Surajit mainly involved in preparation of various supramolecular assemblies containing surfactants, polymers, or room temperature ionic liquids (RTILs) and the effect of confinement on various photophysical processes using different analytical and spectroscopic techniques. After completing his Ph.D., he moved to United States and then Europe for postdoctoral research and completed his postdoctoral research in many reputed universities like University of Arizona, Cornell University, Dublin City University. As part of his postdoctoral research, he was involved in fabrication of protein functionalized biomembranes as cellular-mimetic models for investigation of ion channel activities, antibiotics-membrane interactions. In December 2022, Surajit moved back to India and joined Department of Chemistry, Gandhi Institute of Technology and Management (Deemed-to-be University) Visakhapatnam as an Assistant Professor. Surajit has, so far, authored and co-authored in several peer-reviewed international journals including J. Phys. Chem. Lett., J. Phys. Chem. B, Langmuir, ACS Synth Biol., Biosensors and Bioelectronics, ACS Infect. Dis., Phys. Chem. Chem. Phys. 

In August 2023, Surajit joined the Department of Chemistry, University of Delhi as an Assistant Professor. His current research interest focuses on designing the artificial membrane platforms on different sensor interfaces for plasmonic, electrochemical and optical readouts to explore complex molecular interactions that are associated with cellular membranes.
