Nirmalya Ghosh serves as a Physicist by training, with further specialization in biomedical optics, spectroscopy, and biophotonics. He earned his M.S. degree in physics from University of Kalyani, India, and the M.Tech. degree in laser technology from IIT Kanpur, India. He then joined Laser Biomedical Applications and Instrumentation Division (LBAID), Raja Ramanna Center for Advanced Technology (RRCAT), Indore, Department of Atomic Energy (DAE), India, as a Scientist, where he started his research on biomedical applications of lasers. He obtained his Ph.D. degree in physics from RRCAT, India, and his thesis research was focused on understanding the depolarization of light in a complex turbid medium like biological tissue and evaluating its use for biomedical imaging and diagnosis. Subsequently, he conducted postdoctoral research in the field of biophotonics (with particular emphasis on tissue polarimetry) at the Department of Medical Biophysics, University of Toronto. He has published about 35 papers in peer-reviewed journals, 20 articles in edited volumes, and 3 book chapters in the areas of biomedical optics, spectroscopy, and biophotonics. Currently, he is working as an Assistant Professor at Department of Physical Sciences, Indian Institute of Science Education and Research (IISER), Kolkata, where he is continuing his research on experimental optics, spectroscopy with special emphasis on biophotonics. He also serves as a Reviewer of many journals.
