Meet The Team



Akhil Bhardwaj

M.Sc. Chemistry (2020), IIT Mandi

Research Area: Homogeneous N2 and O2 Activation

I’m a proactive person with a methodical approach towards problem-solving and meticulous nature. I’m inspired by the great personalities of various disciplines, mostly scientists. Other than chemistry, I’m into listening to good music, sports (football and basketball), camping, novels (thrillers), and tasty food. A quote that I believe in is -

“He who is best prepared can best serve his moment of inspiration.”

- Samuel Taylor Coleridge

Mayank Mahajan 

M.Sc. Chemistry (2020), HPU Shimla

Research Area: Biomimetic Organic Transformations

I am a diligent and persistent person who savour the chemistry around us. I am eminently inspired by various researchers and scientists who have started from scratch and have shaped many generations with their great work. When I am not studying I am fond of cooking, hiking, playing cricket and table tennis and listening to music.

A quote that I believe in is -

"Define a goal. Take a pause and realise you can move a mountain!".”


Ashutosh Joshi

M.Tech. Biotechnology (2022), IIT Mandi

Jointly with Dr. Trayambak Basak

Research Area: Structural Investigation of Collagen

The structure of collagen intrigues me more than any protein. Currently, my work is focussed on understanding the molecular changes in the structure of collagen due to various post-translational modifications. I want to contribute to the field of structural biology by getting more insight of collagen structure using computational simulation. I am an optimistic and hard-working person. I like listening to music and writing shayaris and poetries (in Hindi) in free time.


Snehasis Moni

M.Sc. Chemistry (2022), IIT Mandi

Research Area: Homogeneous CO2 Reduction

For me, the constant source of motivation has always been our Mother Nature. I am looking forward to shaping the upcoming times with my research in chemistry. Apart from that, I love spending time playing cricket and table tennis. In my leisure time, I prefer watching movies, web series and sports (Football, Cricket, Tennis) and am fond of listening to music. The research philosophy I believe in- 

"We unleash the power of quantum mechanics to understand chemistry."

Navneet Singh

M.Sc. Chemistry (2020), Thapar Institute

Jointly with Dr. Amit B. Pawar

Research Area: Metalloradical Catalysis

As someone who's passionate about computational chemistry, I view myself as a digital explorer delving into the enigmas of nature. Outside of this realm, I enjoy hiking, playing badminton and table tennis, and indulging in the excitement of watching football. Through my journey in computational chemistry and organometallic catalysis, I aspire to contribute to the progress of science and technology.


Susovon Ghosh

M.Sc. Chemistry (2022), IIT Mandi

Research Area: Enzymatic Catalysis

I believe, that only through the pursuit of science we can have a deeper understanding of life. I enjoy discussions exploring the fundamentals in any avenue of science. Specifically, the underlying chemistry of reactions catalyzed by enzymes intrigues me. At leisure, I enjoy poetry, music, movies, and football.

"An equation means nothing to me unless it expresses a thought of God."
