About me:
      Dr. Pradip Kumar Roy was born in July 1980 in the Burdwan district of West Bengal. He has completed his B.Tech. & Ph.D. in Ceramic Engineering from N.I.T. - Rourkela in 2003 & 2009, respectively. He was associated with Crompton Greaves Ltd., Mumbai, for six years as a Deputy Manager - R&D while leaving. He did his MBA in operations from United Business Institutes, Brussels, Belgium, during his industrial period. He started his teaching career at B.I.T.- Mesra, Ranchi, in 2012. He joined IIT(BHU) in 2014 as an Assistant Professor. Presently, Dr. Roy is working as an Associate Professor in the Department of Ceramic Engineering, IIT(BHU). Current research interests are in the field of Magnetic & Ferroelectric Ceramics, Nano Materials, Refractories, & Waste Management. He has published 45 research papers in international journals, filed 30 Indian patents, and presented 60 research papers in national/international conferences. He is the reviewer of more than 50 International/National Journals and Conferences. He is a Certified Chartered Engineer (CEng) by the British Council, UK. He is also a Fellow of The Institution of Engineers (IEI) (India).
 
Research:
      Our major research focus is on the synthesis, characterization, and application of magnetic and piezoelectric materials. We have engaged in the research on rare-earth-free magnetic materials, magnetic properties of nanoscale materials, & size and shape-dependent properties of nanoscale materials. Some part of our research is associated with the synthesis and characterization of lead-free piezoelectric & ferrite-based composite materials for sensor applications. We are also working on the low-temperature co-fired ceramics for EMI shielding materials and piezoelectric transducers. Recently, we have started to work on the fabrication of sustainable ceramics derived from solid wastes. The major attention is on the solid waste to value-added ceramics conversion, which not only solves the disposal problems but also conserves the natural resources. 

We highly encourage application for a Ph.D. position. JRF/SRF holders can be directly contacted.​
