Krishna Kanti Dey

Krishna Kanti Dey received his PhD in Nanotechnology from Indian Institute of Technology Guwahati, India in 2011. He did his postdoctoral research at The Pennsylvania State University, USA and joined IIT Gandhinagar as an Assistant Professor in Physics in 2016. His research focuses on the collective and emergent dynamics of active bio-molecules and harnessing their cooperative functions in designing useful lab-on-a-chip devices
