Dr. Soumyadeep Chakraborty is an Assistant Professor in the area of Biotechnology. He has 2.5 years of research experience in Biophysics and Molecular biology as a Postdoctoral fellow at Department of Chemical Engineering, IIT Bombay. He completed his Ph.D. in 2015 from Department of Biosciences and Bioengineering, IIT Guwahati where he worked in the field of Enzymology under a collaborative project with CIISA-Faculdade de Medicina Veterinária, Universidade de Lisboa, Lisboa, Portugal. He has published his research in various SCI and Scopus indexed journals, and also presented his work in different national and international conferences.

Dr. Chakraborty’s broader research areas include Enzymology, Biochemistry, Molecular biology, Microbiology, and Biophysics. He is interested in exploring different families of Carbohydrate active enzymes (http://www.cazy.org/), study their biochemical and structural properties, and decipher the application of these enzymes in various industrial processes. His other research interest is to unravel the signal transduction network responsible to drive bacterial flagellar motor during bacterial chemotaxis. He also has a hand on experience in various analytical techniques, which he wanted to apply for development of cost and energy efficient industrial processes.

Dr. Chakraborty as a teacher always believes in teaching with a glimpse of current research in that area. Hence his lectures are always supported by research articles elaborating on the topic he discussed. His subject of interest is Industrial Biotechnology, Molecular Biology, Biochemical Engineering, Biochemistry and Analytical Techniques.
