Dr. Kingshuk Dutta is currently employed as a Junior Scientist in the Advanced Research School for Technology and Product Simulation of the Central Institute of Plastics Engineering and Technology, India. Prior to this appointment, he had worked as an Indo-U.S. Postdoctoral Fellow at the Cornell University, U.S.A. (2018) and as a National Postdoctoral Fellow at the Indian Institute of Technology – Kharagpur, India (2016-17), both funded by the Science and Engineering Research Board, Govt. of India. Earlier, as a Senior Research Fellow funded by the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research, Govt. of India., he had carried out his doctoral study at the University of Calcutta, India (2013-16). He possesses degrees in both technology (B. Tech. and M. Tech.) and science (B. Sc.) all from University of Calcutta. He has also been a recipient of the prestigious Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE) and National Scholarships, both from the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Govt. of India. His areas of research interest lie in the fields of fuel cells (including alcohol, bio/microbial and hydrogen fuel cells), water purification, polymer blends and composites, polymer recycling and polymer processing. Until date, he has contributed to 39 experimental and review papers in reputed international platforms, 12 book chapters and many national and international presentations. In addition, he has co-edited one book titled “Progress and Recent Trends in Microbial Fuel Cells” published by Elsevier. He has also served as a peer reviewer for over 60 journal articles, conference papers, book chapters and research project proposals. He is a life member and an elected fellow of the Indian Chemical Society.
