Employee Name Kunal Chakraborty
Designation Scientist-E
Group Name OMDA
E-mail kunal.c@incois.gov.in
Office Phone no 040-23886080
Educational Details B.Sc. Mathematics, Hooghly Mohsin Govt. College, University of Burdwan.

M.Sc. Mathematics, University of Burdwan.

Ph.D. (Science), Department of Mathematics, Indian Institute of Engineering Science and Technology, Shibpur (Formerly Bengal Engineering Science University, Shibpur)
Research Interests My research is focused on the development of a high resolution operational ocean forecast and reanalysis system, which integrates ocean simulation, observation, and analysis to study the role ocean physics plays in marine environmental health and ecosystem functioning in the coastal ocean and adjacent deep sea.

My research interests include,

1. Physical-biological interactions in the Indian Ocean
2. Biogeochemical cycling of carbon and nitrogen in the ocean and estuaries
3. Dynamics of boundary currents and shelf circulation
4. Ocean circulation and its role in the climate system


Research Positions

If you've recently completed a Post Graduate degree in any of the Physical Sciences (Physics/Applied Physics/ Atmospheric Sciences/Meteorology/Oceanography/Geophysics with Meteorology as one of the subjects/Climate Science or equivalent subjects) or Mathematical Sciences (Mathematics/Applied Mathematics or equivalent subjects) disciplines and are interested to pursue doctoral research in Ocean Modeling, I strongly urge you to apply. You will be someone who is motivated, has fresh ideas and perseveres at your research. Send me a CV along with a brief outline of your research interests and what you will like to do in INCOIS.
