Senior Professor, Department of Chemical Sciences, at the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (TIFR), Mumbai.
Prof. Shyamalava Mazumdar is a Senior Professor at the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (TIFR), Mumbai. He graduated from University of Burdwan, and obtained his Ph.D. from the University of Mumbai based on research carried out at TIFR. He works in the area of redox and electron transfer processes in biological systems. His recent interest involves structure, function, stability of cytochrome P450 enzymes and engineering of these enzymes to tune the substrate recognition site. His group is currently working on conjugation of the engineered thermostable cytochrome P450 enzymes to various nano-materials for enzymatic photo- or electro- catalysis in environmental remediation and for development of potential industrial bio-nano catalysts.
