Avishek Dey, Ph.D.

  • Postdoctoral Research Associate, Ulijn Lab, Nanoscience Initiative

Avishek obtained his B.Sc. and M.Sc. from the Midnapore College and Vidyasagar University, India. He received his Ph.D. in 2018 from Department of Chemistry, Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur, India, under the guidance of Prof. Kumar Biradha. His research focused on the self-assembled functional materials using supramolecular approach. Subsequently, he joined Prof. Niveen Khashab group at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST), Saudi Arabia as a Postdoctoral Fellow in the same year where his research focused on self-assembly of organic materials such as cages, macrocycles, energy intensive separations and bioimaging. He has been also awarded JSPS fellowship, Japan in 2022. Then, he joined as a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Prof. Eric Bloch group at University of Delaware, USA to investigate the self-assembly of the porous cages. Avishek joined Prof. Rein Ulijn’s group at Advance Science Research Center, CUNY (New York, USA) in 2023 as a Research Associate to work on the functional organic materials such as systems and flow chemistry, adaptive peptide assembly using machine learning techniques.
