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 techniques.
I am interested in studying protein biochemistry with applications in cancer and development of new treatments. I have a Bachelors in biochemistry from Central Michigan University and a Masters in Pharmaceutical Science from UTHSC. My previous research has been in genetics and cell biology and I'm looking forward to developing further as a researcher.
I grew up in Madhaikhal, a small village under the Nageshwari Upazilla of Kurigram District in Bangladesh. I did my bachelors and masters from the University of Rajshahi. During my masters, I focused on synthetic organometallic chemistry, different spectroscopic techniques, thermal studies, and biological activities. I joined here as a Ph.D. candidate in Fall 2022. I am currently interested in protein design, bioinorganic chemistry, and catalysis. I welcome accepting the challenge of new areas in different fields. I love to explore new places, new cultures, and new cuisines. I also dabble in the kitchen, albeit with little success and many failures to my name.
Class of 2023
Morgan is an Ole Miss Rebelette and B.S. Chemistry (emphasis: Biochemistry) student with minors in Mathematics and Spanish. She is excited to continue learning protein electrochemistry with Divyansh.
Class of 2023
I am a BA Biochemistry major and premed, currently doing my Honors thesis research in the Chakraborty lab. I am learning peptide electrochemistry.
Class of 2023
I am a BA Biochemistry major doing my thesis work in artificial H2 evolution. I plan to attend graduate school.
Class of 2026
I am majoring in Biochemistry with minors in Biology and Spanish. I am a Pre-Med student and is excited to get hands-on research experience and learn from the graduate students in Dr. Chakraborty's lab.
