Hello! I’m Priyabrata. Currently, I’m pursuing my Ph.D. at the Centre for Nano and Soft Matter Sciences (CeNS), Bangalore.
I am from a small village, Tiorkhali, which comes under Purba Medinipur district of West Bengal. Yes, I am a bong guy! I spent most of my life there until higher studies sent me far away from my sweet home. I really miss my village nowadays.
I did my bachelor studies in PK College, Contai in physics. Then, I cleared the IIT-JAM exam and moved to the Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur in 2016 for post-graduation. Immediately after completion of my master’s studies, I joined CeNS Bangalore in 2018 for a doctoral degree.
My research mainly focuses on processing several layered materials like hexagonal boron nitride, metal oxides, pnictogens, etc., and using them in suitable applications like a supercapacitor, electrochromic devices, etc. You can check out my research works in the “Research updates” section. Feel free to contact me if you have anything in your mind regarding my research. We can discuss/work together on some topic, which I would like to have!
Of course, I do have some hobbies on which I spent most of my free time. I do watch a lot of movies, irrespective of the language. You may suggest some, and in return, I can also share some masterpieces that you may not know. Sometimes, I write a short review of the cinema I liked and you will find these in the CineReview section. Besides, I love to read and write Bengali short stories. There is a separate “Stories” section in my blog for this purpose. Another hobby of mine is cooking. I am still learning to cook different kinds of dishes.
Once again, a warm welcome to my blog! You can explore different posts, and I hope you will have a great experience!
We can also stay connected through social media! If you wish, we can have some informal chat or something over there!
