Dr. Sourav Biswas
Assistant Professor of Chemistry and Associate Director of Center for Integrated Studies in Nanoscience & Nanotechnology
Specialization: Field of Catalysis, Material Chemistry, Nanomaterials,
Address: New York, USA
Sourav is from Kolkata (known as 'city of joy'), India and completed his Masters from Indian Institute of Technology Madras. He moved to the United States in 2011 to pursue his Ph.D at the University of Connecticut under Prof. Steven L. Suib. Sourav's interest in the field of catalysis and material chemistry bloomed during his Ph.D, when he studied a unique type of nanomaterials, recognized as 'University of Connecticut' or 'UCT' materials. Sourav pursued his postdoctoral study under Prof. Shannon S. Stahl at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where he utilized his material synthesis skills on developing a 'flow-cathode' based fuel cell technology as an alternate energy source. Before joining Buffalo State, Sourav was appointed as a postdoctoral researcher at the Catalysis Center of Energy Innovation at the University of Delaware, where his project was to investigate the surface of metal nanoparticles by spectroscopic techniques. Sourav has published 31 peer-reviewed publications and 1 US patent with 7 academic awards till date. Sourav has started his independent research career at the SUNY Buffalo State from Spring 2021.
