        A Brief Introduction

Welcome! Welcome to my  official homepage!
  I am Tatsat Banerjee. Currently, I am a final year student of Master of Technology course at the Department of Chemical Engineering of IIT Kanpur. My recent curriculum vitae is available here (Please note that it is subject to change and may be out-of-date at times).

I was born and brought up at Kolkata (yes, at "the city of joy"). I have spent spent tweenty one wonderful years there, almost continuously, before shifting to Kanpur. I have successfully completed my school education from Hindu School, Kolkata. - the institutuion from where the modern (aka European) education system was started its journey in India.

After spending long time (1999 to 2010, to be precise) there, I  joined the Department of Chemical Engineering of Jadavpur University (JU) in 2010 as a bachelor student.  Subsequently, in the summers of 2012 and 2013, I was at IIT Kanpur under two SURGE programs, to ponder over the directed self-assembly of nanoparticles and three dimentional photonic crystals, under the guidance of Dr. Sri Sivakumar. For my final year bachelor degree project, I have worked on photocatalytic water splitting, under the mentorship of Prof. Alakananda Mukherjee. Finally, I have completed my Bachelor of Engineering in Chemical Engineering degree with First Class Honors, from JU, in 2014.

Broadly speaking, I am interested in applying principles of nanoscience and chemical engineering in the domain of photonics, healthcare technology, and energy science (Are you feeling interested? Great! Please have a closer look on the Research Interest and Projects page).

For my MTech thesis project, I am working under the guidance of Prof. Ashutosh Sharma and Dr. Sri Sivakumar. I am currently trying to use upconverting nanoparticles for fluorescent bioimaging pupose.

 Apart from chemical engineering or chemistry, I find my pleasure in writing, reciting, acting, debating, and in any other activities that need critical thinking!

 Now this webpage is basically an attempt to create an official online profile of myself, in a nutshell. This webpage is now out-of-date. If you want to know any part of my current academic profile in detail, then please visit:



And last, but not the least quick point to mention: please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or suggestions about that site. Thanks for visiting!!
