Suchitra is an international Ph.D. student. She is excited to work on foldamers and protein design.
Pallavi is the "BioLogical" component of the lab. She is big time foodie, has been bitten by the travel bug (and loves to explore new places), and is excited to be the protein engineer in lab. She will work on designing peptide inhibitors against Alzheimer's.
Dhanashree joined as a graduate student in fall 2017 and is really excited to handle the first project in bioelectrochemistry. She previously has worked with nanomaterials.
Sreya joined Chakraborty lab in fall 2018 to study biochemistry. She previously studied synthesis of metal organic frameworks (MOFs) and its catalytic applications, but is thrilled to explore the new areas of study.
Divyansh joined Chakraborty lab in fall 2019 to study bioinorganic chemistry. He believes in transformative challenges and interested in alternate energy research. During his masters a IIT Gandhinagar, Divyansh has acquired synthetic skills, and learned electrochemitry-related and spectroscopic technique.
