Dr. Chakraborty completed her Ph.D in Natural Sciences from Guangzhou
Institute of Geochemistry, China in 2009 with full scholarship. Major
research interest lies in environmental occurrences, source
identification, fate and behaviour of emerging contaminants of concern,
persistent organic pollutants and toxic metals. After 3 years of
post-doctoral experiences from China, Hongkong and USA, Dr. Chakraborty
joined SRM Institute of Science and Technology in 2012 and leads the
Environmental Science and Technology research group. ES&T research
group works on Ganga-Brahmaputra Delta and major Indian cities on various
trace contaminants. She is passionate, tireless and penchant towards
societal upliftment and strongly believes that science should serve the
public welfare. She involves herself in projects that are challenging and
overwhelming for a commoner, delivering results that literally questions
the status-quo. Dr. Chakraborty is the principal investigator for
projects over 1.5 crore INR funded by national and international funding
agencies. Dr. Chakraborty is a recipient of prestigious Water Advanced
Research and Innovation (WARI) Fellowship 2016 from Indo-US Science and
Technology Forum, Early Career Chemist, 2015 and numerous Travel Grants
by ACS and other research organizations. She has published over 37
scientific articles and 8 book chapters in high impact journals with an
H-Index of 18. With industry partner she has published a patent on a
product from recycled plastic. Dr. Chakraborty is instrumental in
bringing out the trace contaminant scenario in India stunning the global
research community with her cutting edge research outcomes. A lovable
teacher for students across various disciplines, Dr. Chakraborty's
community outreach backs her scientific quest.
