Professor Pankaj Das did his M.Sc (1995) in Chemistry from Gauhati University, India and Ph.D (2002) from CSIR, NEIST (formerly Regional Research Laboratory), Jorhat, Assam, India affiliated to Dibrugarh University, India. He did his Ph.D work in the area of Organometallic Chemistry under supervision of Dr. Dipak Kumar Dutta, Scientist, Material Science Division. After completing his Ph.D, he worked as postdoctoral fellow for one year (2002-2003) at the University of Brest, France, with Prof. Philippe Schollahammer and two years (2003-2005) at the University of Porto, Portugal with Prof. Cristina Freire. In 2005, he joined the Chemistry Department, Dibrugarh University, Assam as a Lecturer and continued until July 2012. He then moved to the Rajiv Gandhi Central University, Arunachal Pradesh as Associate Professor and was promoted to full Professor in May 2014. After spending two years at Rajiv Gandhi University, in July 2014 he again came back to Dibrugarh University as a Professor and continues till date. Prof. Das also served as Head of the Department of Chemistry for two years (2012-2014) at Rajiv Gandhi University and three years (2015-2018) at Dibrugarh University. His present research is mainly concerned with platinum group metal based homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysis.
Prof. Benjaram Mahipal Reddy did his PhD (1986) at CSIR-Indian Institute of Chemical Technology, Hyderabad, where he held a Chief Scientist and Head of Inorganic & Physical Chemistry Division position. He has been a visiting scientist or an award fellow at various institutes and universities in the USA, Russia, Germany, France, Australia, Japan, South Korea, and Switzerland. So far, he has guided 40 PhD theses and a good number of bachelor and master students for their degrees. He has more than 300 research publications (h-index 69) in high impact journals and holds 8 patents to his credit. He is an elected fellow of the National Academy of Sciences India, Indian National Academy of Engineering, and Royal Society of Chemistry. He has been serving as an editorial board member or a guest editor for a good number of high impact journals.
Prasenjit Mal obtained his MSc degree from Indian Institute of technology Kharagpur, followed by PhD from the Indian Institute of technology Kanpur in 2005. Then he undertook postdoctoral studies from the University of Siegen in Germany as Alexander von Humboldt Fellow (2006-2007) and from the University of Cambridge in the UK as Marie Curie Fellow (2008-2009). In December 2009, he started an independent research career at NISER Bhubaneswar. His research is focused on photochemistry and supramolecular catalysis in organic chemistry.
Prof. Dr. G. Bez obtained a doctorate in Chemistry from CSIR North-East Institute of Science and Technology (formerly, RRL), Jorhat. Currently, he is a Professor of Chemistry at North-Eastern Hill University, Shillong, India. He works in the area of asymmetric catalysis, heterocyclic chemistry and medicinal chemistry. He has authored around 70 scientific research publications and has also delivered more than 30 invited lectures at various national and international conferences.
