Munmun Ghosh

Assistant Professor of Chemistry, Ashoka University

Ph.D. National Chemical Laboratory, Pune

Dr. Munmun Ghosh has completed her PhD from the National Chemical Laboratory (NCL) in Pune working on bioinorganic Chemistry especially, study of C-H bond mechanism by high-valent Fe(V)(O) mimicking the activity of cytochrome P450 in nature. During her PhD she was an INDIGO fellow in Regensburg University, Germany and BASF, Ludwigshafen, Germany. She was also a visiting fellow at Carnegie Mellon University during her PhD. After finishing PhD, she joined Reliance Industries Limited (RIL) in Navi Mumbai as a scientist dealing with the properties of crude oil. She did her postdoc at Goettingen University, Germany as an Alexander von Humboldt fellow. After this, she worked as a guest faculty at Delhi University.


Her research interest lies in dealing with molecular catalysts capable of performing electrochemical CO2 reduction to produce value-added products. She is also interested in molecular protein engineering, interdisciplinary research allying biology and chemistry.
