Sreyashi Sarkar, currently working as a CSIR Research Associate in the Department of Chemical Engineering, Jadavpur University, possesses a Bachelor of Technology degree in Food Technology and Biochemical Engineering (2002) and a Master of Technology degree in Biotechnology (2004) from Jadavpur University, Kolkata. She obtained Ph.D. (Engg.) degree in the year 2010 from Jadavpur University. She has also worked as a CSIR Direct Senior Research Fellow (2005-2009). She has also qualified the GATE in 2006. Her current post doctoral work is mainly on the design of novel biofilm reactor (conico cylindrical flask or CCF) and the production of bioactive compounds from marine as well as terrestrial biofilm-formers in the CCF. Her post doctoral work has been published in reputed international journals and has been filed as a US patent by CSIR. She secured a medal for the best presentation in the international conference “Biotechnology for Better Tomorrow 2011” held at Aurangabad, India. Sreyashi’s doctoral thesis was concentrated on the design of novel niche-mimic bioreactors for the cultivation of salt-tolerant biofilm-forming marine actinobacteria isolated from the intertidal environment of the Sundarbans. Although an engineer by training, Sreyashi has proficiency in chemical structure elucidation, DNA isolation, PCR techniques and DNA sequencing. Sreyashi has undergone training in food processing industries. She also has a three months training on “Auto CAD with Auto LISP” from the Computer Aided Design Centre, Department of Computer Science and Engineering, Jadavpur University to her credit.
