    INSTRUCTOR BIO





    Dr. Atanu Bhattacharya was born at Matiari (Nadia, West Bengal, India), in 1983. He received the BSc degree in Chemistry from R. K. Mission Vidyamandira (Calcutta University, India) and the MSc degree in Physical Chemistry from Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay (India), in 2003 and 2005, respectively. He received the PhD degree in Physical Chemistry from Colorado State University (USA) in 2010. His doctoral research involved the time and frequency resolved spectroscopy of energetic molecules in molecular beam under supervision of Prof. Elliot R. Bernstein. In 2010, he joined Department of Chemistry, Brookhaven National Laboratory (USA) as post-doctoral fellow for studying catalytic reaction dynamics in femtosecond to picosecond time domain under supervision of Dr. Nicholas Camillone III. Then in 2012 he joined Kyoto University (Japan) as program specific researcher to work on liquid beam time resolved photoelectron spectroscopy and liquid beam X-ray absorption spectroscopy under supervision of Prof. Toshinori Suzuki. In 2013, he joined Indian Institute of Science (Bangalore, India) as assistant professor at the Department of Inorganic and Physical Chemistry. Currently, he is specializing in Attosecond Chemistry, Femtosecond Chemistry of Catalysis and Explosives and Femtosecond X-ray Spectroscopy. He has been teaching “ultrafast optics and spectroscopy in physical chemistry” course at Indian Institute of Science for several years.
