Welcome! Welcome to TatsatBanerjee.in, my personal website!
I am Tatsat Banerjee. Currently I am a first year student of Master of Technology course at the Department of Chemical Engineering of IIT Kanpur (My homepage on IITK domain is available on: home.iitk.ac.in/~tatsatb).
I was born and brought up at Kolkata (yes, at "the city of joy"). I have spent twenty one wonderful years there, almost continuously, before shifting to Kanpur. I have successfully completed my school education from Hindu School, Kolkata. - the institution 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 dimensional photonic crystals. Finally, I have completed my Bachelor of Engineering in Chemical Engineering degree with First Class Honors, from JU, in 2014.
For my Master's 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. 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 of this site).
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 website is basically an attempt to create an official online presentation of myself, in a concise manner. Please feel free to browse! And feel free to contact me if you have any questions or suggestions about this site.
Thanks for visiting!!
