Dr. Parthapratim Munshi is an acclaimed chemical scientist and crystallographer who has received his Ph.D. under the supervision of Prof. T. N. Guru Row, Solid State and Structural Chemistry Unit, Indian Institute of Science (IISc.), Bangalore. Dr. Munshi then carried out his Postdoctoral research in Prof. Mark A Spackman's Group at the University of Western Australia (2005-08)and was subsequently awarded the prestigious Marie Curie International Incoming Fellowship to work with Dr. Christian Jelsch as a Postdoc at the Nancy University, France (2008-10). Prior to joining at SNU, Dr. Munshi worked as a Research Scientist at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory, TN, USA (2011-13).
Dr. Munshi has published research papers extensively in high standard international journals and attended several conferences and meetings around the globe to deliver lectures and present his research works. Dr. Munshi is leading the Chemistry Department since 2018. He has been named as one of the Emerging Investigators in Crystal Growth & Design-2019. In 2020, Dr. Munshi was invited by the world’s leading chemistry community through its ‘Leaders in the Field’ scheme to become a fellow of Royal Society of Chemistry (FRSC), UK, for his significant contributions in the field, particularly in the area of Organic multifunctional materials and several other notable research. Recently, he has been inducted as a Consultant to the Commission on Quantum Crystallography (QCr) of the IUCr, 2020 – 23 and Member of National Committee for IUCr, 2020 – 23.
Dr. Munshi has supervised several Ph.D., Master and B.Sc.(Reserach) students while at the Chemistry Department at SNU. His research group is focusing on structure-property relationships of organic multifunctional materials and hydrogen bonding studies in protein systems. His group extensively use high-resolution X-ray and neutron diffraction methods for highly accurate structural studies. For further details please visit http://parthapratimmunshi.weebly.com/.
