About

I am Pankaj Kumar Chaturvedi,

I started my career from a small backward village Purwa in Singrauli, Madhya Pradesh. I did my schooling from Deosar, Singrauli only. For graduation, I moved to Delhi to pursue BSc (hons.) in Chemistry from Hindu College, University of Delhi. I had appeared in several MSc (Chemistry) entrance exams like IIT-JAM, JNU, BHU and DU and secured good ranks. Joining BHU i.e. Sarva Vidya Ki Rajdhani was a dream for me, so I chose BHU over the others. Those two years of MSc has introduced me to the broader dimensions of life and Chemistry. I qualified JRF in first semester December 2017 (AIR 52), GATE 2019 (AIR 81). Then, I cracked PhD interviews at IISER Mohali, IIT Kanpur, JNCASR, IISc Bangalore. In August 2019, I joined Department of Organic Chemistry, IISc Bangalore to pursue my PhD (JRF) under the supervision of Prof. Uday Maitra, subsequently selected as Prime Minister's Research Fellow.
