I am currently a PhD scholar in my final year of graduation at the Phycology Laboratory, Department of Botany, University of Calcutta (India). My work involves the analyses of carbon foot-prints of phytoplankton populations in the Sundarbans, and bio-prospection of algal lipids for biodiesel production. I previously finished my M.Tech in Applied Botany at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur. I have authored eight publications in international peer-reviewed journals, and one in a national journal.
Title : Carbon flow mediated by brackish-water algal mats in Indian Sunderbans: A case study for environment-friendly and sustainable source of biodiesel
