Biography

Saptarshi received his B.Sc. (Honours) degree in Chemistry from R K Mission Residential College, Narendrapur, India, in 2014. He then joined Indian Institute of Science Education and Research (IISER) - Kolkata as an Integrated Ph.D. student. After finishing his M.S. Thesis entitled – “Understanding Optical Behaviour of CsPbBr 3 Perovskite Quantum Dot”, he joined the group of Prof. Prasun K. Mandal for Doctoral research during August 2016. During Ph.D. tenure, Saptarshi has worked with all-inorganic Perovskites, II-VI (CdSe based) and III-V (InP based) semiconductor nanomaterials, however, the primary goal was focused in understanding the fundamental photophysical processes in these materials at the ensemble as well as single particle level.

In 2023 Saptarshi joined the Peng Lab in the Broad Institute at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, U.S.A.
