Dr. Sukul is an Assistant Professor (Senior Grade) in the Department of Chemistry, Amity University Kolkata since October 2018. Dr. Sukul received his PhD in Chemistry from the Indian Association for the Cultivation of Science (IACS)/Jadavpur University, India in December 2013 under the supervision of Prof. Sudip Malik, School of Interdisciplinary Sciences, IACS. He did M.Sc. in Chemistry with organic chemistry Specialization from Vidyasagar University, India in July 2008 and his B.Sc. in Chemistry from Mahishadal Raj College (Vidyasagar University), India in 2006. He did his Postdoctoral Research work with Prof. Omar M. Yaghi and Dr. Kentaro Tashiro, Reticular Materials Group, International Centre for Materials and Nanoarchitectonics, National Institute for Materials Science, Japan from February 2014 to December 2015. Before joining at Amity University Kolkata he worked as a DST Inspire Faculty Fellow, Department of Chemistry, National Institute of Technology Patna, India from June, 2016 to October, 2018.

Currently Dr. Sukul is working as SERB (Govt. of India) International Research Fellow in the group of Prof. Gasser.

He likes cooking and travelling during spare time.
