Dr. Soumen Ghosh
Assistant Professor, IPC

Soumen is an Assistant Professor at the Department of Inorganic and Physical Chemistry, Indian Institute of Science. His main research interests are focused on exploring the ultrafast structural, spin, and chiral dynamics in chemical, biological, and material systems. As a Marie Sklodowska-Curie Fellow with Professor Giulio Cerullo at Politecnico di Milano, Soumen worked on the development and applications of femtosecond circular dichroism spectroscopy for probing chiroptical and spin response. He earned his Ph.D. in Chemistry under Professor Warren F. Beck at Michigan State University working on the heterodyne transient grating studies of ultrafast conformational dynamics of carotenoids in photosynthesis. He received MSc in Chemistry from IIT Kanpur, working with Professor Pratik Sen for the Master's thesis.
