Dr. Subhendu Chakroborty (Assistant Professor)
Dr. Subhendu Chakroborty is currently working as an Assistant Professor in the School of Sciences, Auro University, Surat, India. He has completed his MSc. Chemistry (Organic Specialization) from Vellore Institute of Technology (VIT) University Tamil Nadu and Ph.D. in Chemistry from Ravenshaw University, Cuttack. After completion of his degree, he joined the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Indore, India as a post-doctoral fellow.
He later moved to Taiwan in Jan 2017 and worked as a postdoc fellow with Prof. Albert T. Wu at the Department of Chemical and Materials Engineering of National Central University. After completing his one-year tenure, he then moved to work with Prof. Chun-Jen Huang of Biomedical Sciences and Engineering department in the same university where he got an opportunity to work on an industrial project, “Surface modification for silicone catheters.” He was in charge of the whole work, from chemical synthesis, material characterizations, surface modification, post-functionalization, and surface analysis.
He has presented his research in various national and international conferences/symposia. He has published 15 international peer-reviewed journal papers, 1 book chapter, and 4 books. He is a member of the Royal Chemical Society (MRSC) since 2011 and the American Chemical Society (ACS) since 2010. He is also a life member of Orissa Chemical Society.
