Dr. Kingshuk Roy

Research Scientist

Kingshuk has completed his B.Sc. with honours in Chemistry from Barasat Govt. College, West Bengal State University with an overall University rank of 9. Later he joined IISER Pune through Joint Admission Test for M.Sc (JAM), a national level joint entrance examination conducted by IITs to pursue his MS and Ph.D.

In his Ph.D., he has worked on design, synthesis and characterizations of different organic inorganic hybrid systems; binary, ternary, quaternary oxides, sulphides and carbides systems; various alloying systems; small molecules and using the same as electrode materials for Li and Na ion batteries. He has also worked on supercapacitor systems with a special focus on developing flexible all-solid-state micro-supercapacitors. During his Ph.D. he also has experience in working with industries like KPIT for developing Na-ion batteries for electric buses and LIVGUARD for developing Li-ion batteries both for household electronics and small electric rickshaws.

During his Ph.D., he visited the University of Edinburgh, the University of Swansea and the University of Cambridge, UK through prestigious awards like Indo-UK Education Research Initiative (UKIERI) and Newton Prize fund for collaborative research work on developing novel high-performance anode materials Li and Na ion batteries. He was an active group member of the Indo-UK Strategic University Network to Revolutionize Indian Solar Energy (SUNRISE) program, an Indo-UK multi university energy program where he has contributed in terms of R&D in the field of energy storage especially batteries.

Kingshuk has also guided several bachelors and masters students for their lab projects, semester projects as well as 5th year masters projects.

Kingshuk currently holds the position of “Research Scientist” at RISE under TCG CREST
