About the Faculty

Dr. Narendra Nath Ghosh has received his M.Sc. (1994) and Ph.D. degree (1999) in Chemistry from Indian Institute of Technology-Kharagpur, India. He has pursued his post doctoral study in the Center for Composite Materials at University of Delaware (USA), Chemistry Department of University of Tennessee at Knoxville (USA) and Chemical and Materials Engineering Department of University of Kentucky at Lexington (USA). He has joined BITS, Pilani KK Birla Goa campus on 13th December 2004. His research areas include (i) development of novel chemical methodologies for synthesis of nanostructured multifunctional materials, such as (i) magnetic oxides, (ii) graphene and graphene based composites (ii) advanced Mesoporous oxides, (iii) Polymer-ceramic nanocomposites and their applications in microwave absorber, catalysis, super capacitor.

As of August 2016, under Dr. Ghosh's guidance five students have received PhD degree (2011, 2012, 2013, 2015, 2016), and currently three students have registered for PhD.

Dr. Ghosh is the recipient of TUBITAK visiting scientist fellowship award for the year 2006 and 2009, sponsored by The Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey. In 2010 he has received “Research Exchanges with China and India award” by The Royal Academy of Engineering (UK) with Professor Gerard F Fernando of University of Birmingham, UK. In 2015, jointly with Professor Gerard F Fernando of University of Birmingham, UK Dr. Ghosh has received Newton Research Collaboration award, sponsored by Govt of UK.

Dr. Ghosh has published more than 100 research articles in peer reviewed international journals, invited book chapters, and International conference proceedings such as Progress in Polymer Science (5-Year Impact Factor: 31.7), Journal of the American Ceramic Society (One of the top journals in the materials science-ceramics category), Powder Technology, Journal of Porous Materials, Catalysis Communication, Journal of Polymer Nanostructured Materials, Chemical Communications, and so forth. He is coauthor of a paper which has been published as “Highlight paper” in Journal of Polymer Science: Part A: Polymer Chemistry and his another paper, which has published in Polymer International, has been cited as “First in the Top three papers” of the journal. His two papers, published in Powder Technology, have been ranked as one of the “Top 25 hottest articles”. Two of his papers have been listed as “Top cited papers” in the journal “Powder Technology” and “Catalysis Communication”. His research work has been reported as a Special Report "Research in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology" in Chemical Weekly, which is a leading magazine for Chemical and related industries.

Dr. Ghosh is Editorial Board Member of (i) Journal of Chemical Engineering and Material Science Published by Academic Journals (Editor: 2015), (ii) Science Letters Journal (Journal's Section: Nanoscience and Nanotechnology Journal's Sub-section: Nanocomposites) Published by Cognizure, (iii) International Scholarly Research Notices (Materials Science) Published by Hindawi Publishing Corporation, (iv) Advances in Nanomaterials (Science Publishing Group Inc. USA) and reviewer of more than 35 international journals. He is one of the Member Experts in Chemistry for selection of candidates for Commonwealth Scholarship and subject expert (Materials Science) of SRF/ RA selection committee of CSIR.

Dr. Ghosh’s research activity is sponsored by several national as well as international funding agencies such as Department of Science and Technology, New Delhi, Defence Research and Development Organization, Board of Research in Nuclear Science, CSIR, DAE-UGC consortium, The Royal Academy Of Engineering (UK) and British Council (DST- UKIERI).
