Soumya De did his BSc. (Hons) and MSc from IIT Kharagpur. He completed his PhD from Cornell University, USA followed by postdoctoral research at University of British Columbia, Canada. He joined IIT Kharagpur as Assistant Professor in 2015. His research interest include biophysics, biochemistry, enzymology, signal transduction and regulation of gene expression, and protein engineering. The overarching research goal of Dr. Soumya De's laboratory is to decipher the structural and dynamic principles that govern protein functions and their regulation. This is achieved using solution NMR spectroscopy and other biophysical methods that characterize the structure and dynamics of proteins.
