Dr. Dipanwita Majumdar is currently working as Associate Professor (WBES) in Chemistry<br /> at the Department of Chemistry, Chandernagore College, Chandannagar, Hooghly, WB, India<br /> -712136. She had started her journey in the West Bengal Education Service under the<br /> Department of Higher Education, Govt. of West Bengal in 2009. Formerly, she was posted at<br /> Assistant Professor (WBES) in Chemistry at the Department of Chemistry, Barasat Govt.<br /> College, Barasat, WB, India-700124.<br /> Dipanwita Majumdar, younger daughter of Sri Arun Kumar Majumdar and Smt. Sibani<br /> Majumdar, along with her elder sister Anindita Majumdar (presently Dr. Anindita Jana), had<br /> been residing in a small town called Tribeni, beside the river Bhagirathi (source stream of the<br /> Ganges), at the Hooghly district of West Bengal, almost 60 km far from the main city of<br /> Kolkata. She did her schooling at Tribeni Tissues Vidyapith and passed ICSE in the year<br /> 2000 securing 88% marks. She passed her Higher Secondary Examination in 2002 with 80%<br /> under WBBHSE from Dr. Bidhan Chandra Ray Mahavidyalaya, BTPS, Tribeni, Hooghly.<br /> Although she was qualified in WB-JEE Mains (engineering), she preferred to study in the<br /> General Degree Course stream because of her strong passion for Chemistry, Physics and<br /> Mathematics. She got enrolled in Chemistry Hons. at Sreegopal Banerjee College, Bagati,<br /> Mogra, Hooghly, WB, affiliated to The University of Burdwan. She graduated in Chemistry<br /> Honors in the year 2005, securing 72.1% in Chemistry Hons. and ranked 7th in the<br /> university. She also ranked (AIR-162) in JAM-2005 examination. However, she preferred to<br /> get admitted to The University of Burdwan and completed her Masters in Chemistry with<br /> Inorganic specialization in 2007. She had also qualified GATE 2006 exam (AIR-261) and GATE-<br /> 2007 exam (AIR-12) and was also invited for the Shyma Prasad Mukherjee Fellowship Interview,<br /> conducted by CSIR-HRDG, GOI, for ranking among the top 20% in the GATE-2007 and<br /> UGC-CSIR NET Examination-2007, held in Dec. 2006. She initially joined IIT Bombay<br /> for her doctoral work but due to some personal reasons,, had to get shifted to the Indian<br /> Association for the Cultivation of Science, Jadavpur, Kolkata-700030, India. She started her<br /> doctoral work at the Department of Materials Science, Indian Association for the Cultivation<br /> of Science, Jadavpur, Kolkata-700030, India under the humble guidance of Prof. Shymal K.<br /> Saha, and obtained her PhD degree from Jadavpur University in 2011 in Science. Her<br /> doctoral thesis had the topic “Optical and electronic properties of organic nanostructures”.<br /> In her doctoral work, she gained expertise in the field of synthesis of different conducting<br /> polymer nanostructures while studying their versatile properties such as charge transport,<br /> ferroelectric responses, etc. She also worked on the preparation of different<br /> functionalized graphenes for investigating their probable applications in the world of<br /> electronics. Her works have been frequently praised in renowned journals of Wiley, Elsevier,<br /> ACS, Springer that includes Advanced Materials, ChemElectroChem, Applied Physics<br /> Letters, Journals of Electroanalytical Chemistry, Macromolecular Rapid Communications,<br /> RSC Advances, Chemical Physics Letters, Journal of Energy Storage, and various other<br /> popular journals in the research world of Materials Science.<br /> Since the last decade, she had been concentrating on the development of various<br /> nanocomposites of graphenes, conducting polymers and also on different inorganic<br /> nanomaterials such as MXenes, metal oxides, etc., which may work as better electrode<br /> materials for proficient energy generation and storage/conversion devices. A good number of<br /> review articles in this field of research have been contributed by her with appreciable citations. She has also written a good number of book chapters on various topics related to<br /> electrochemical energy storage, particularly for beginners in this rapidly developing area<br /> of materials science, published by Wiley, Springer, CRC Press, etc. She has also been<br /> working on water treatment strategies based on various graphene-composite systems.<br /> She always enjoys her teaching career through active academic interactions with students and<br /> her main focus is always on teaching and learning. Besides, she also enjoys carrying out<br /> different administrative responsibilities at the College. Currently, she has been assigned the<br /> responsibility of IQAC Coordinator of Chandernagore College and she expresses her<br /> enjoyment and good experiences while dealing with different Institutional Academic and<br /> Administrative responsibilities. As all can understand, carrying out research work under<br /> infrastructural constraints and with limited resources is always a great challenge! Research<br /> has always been a strong passion for her and she strongly feels that it is very essential to<br /> remain attached to such academic activities, irrespective of all problems and difficulties, for<br /> remaining up-to-date and for developing better teaching-learning skills.<br />
