He holds the position of Associate Professor at the Department of Chemistry. He has more than ten years of teaching and research experience in Synthetic Organic Chemistry. He has seven publications in peer review journals to his credit. He earned his PhD in 2006 from IIT Kharagpur. The PhD thesis work was based on Modified Hunsdiecker Reactions. His postdoctoral work at Technion, Israel Institute of Technology, Israel consisted of diastereo- and enantio-selective construction of all carbon quaternary stereocenters in acyclic systems. He is particularly interested in developing carbon-carbon and carbon-heteroatom bond forming processes, which efficiently create multiple stereocenters and their applications in the synthesis of valuable building blocks for organic chemistry, biologically important and structurally interesting organic compounds.

Now his research group is involved in studying the stereoselective claisen rearrangement reactions, stereo- and regio-selective hydroboration reactions, decarboxylative borylation reactions, synthesis of boron carboxylates and its application in decarboxylative 1,4-metallate shift reactions.
