Short Bio-data:

Jyotirmayee Dash received her MSc from Ravenshaw University and PhD in organic chemistry from the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Kanpur. Subsequently she was awarded Alexander von Humboldt fellowship (2004-2006) and worked at the Freie University Berlin. Then she worked as a postdoctoral fellow at the ESPCI Paris for one year. Following which she was awarded Marie Curie International incoming fellowship and joined the University of Cambridge, UK (2007-2009). She joined as an Assistant Professor at the Indian Institute of Science Education and Research-Kolkata in 2009 and then moved to the Indian Association for the Cultivation of Science-Kolkata in 2012.

Current Research Interests:

Development of molecular probes to perform specific functions

Our research is focused on the development of simple and modular synthetic strategies to prepare organic molecules which can perform specific or multiple tasks. We aim at developing new or improved synthetic methods using transition metal catalysis, microwave heating and combinatorial chemistry in the presence of a target to obtain new classes of chemical probes. We then use an integrated multi-disciplinary approach to identify these molecular probes which can mimic an enzyme to catalyze a reaction, selectively detect and interact with nucleic acid sequences or self-assemble to form complex nano-architecture.
