Dr Arnab Chakraborty

PhD in Materials Science and Engineering from UNSW Sydney (Sep 2022)

M.E (Masters) in Production Engineering from Thapar University, Patiala (Nov 2016)

B.Tech (Bachelors) in Mechanical Engineering from Central University (GGU), Bilaspur (May 2013)

Research & Enterprise
Electron Microscope Unit

My PhD research focused on engineering microstructures in low carbon microalloyed steels studying influence of molybdenum on evolution of soft (ferrite) and hard (martensitic) phases. Am passionate about material characterization using methods such as scanning electron microscopy, electron back scattered diffraction, and electron dispersive spectroscopy techniques. I am presently working as a Technical Officer in the Electron Microscope Unit, UNSW looking after various scanning electron microscopes and imparting training to general users.
