About the Faculty

Dr. Ranjan Dey is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry(FRSC), U.K. The designation FRSC is given to a small group of elected Fellows of the Society who have made outstanding contribution to Chemistry.

He was recently invited to Deliver a Keynote in THERMAM 2019 on    NEWER, SIMPLE AND EFFECTIVE APPROACHES FOR PREDICTING VISCOSITY OF BINARY, TERNARY AND MULTICOMPONENT LIQUID MIXTURES” AT 6th INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE : THERMOPHYSICAL AND MECHANICAL PROPERTIES OF ADVANCED MATERIALS-THERMAM 2019  & 8TH ROSTOCKER INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE, THERMOPHYSICAL PROPERTIES FOR TECHNICAL THERMODYAMICS, AT CESME, IZMIR , TURKEY, 22ND – 24TH SEPTEMBER, 2019. https://thermam.org/
 
He was invited as as Academic Visitor to the Department of Chemistry, Cambridge University, U.K. and spent the summer of 2018 working under the mentorship of Prof. David Wales, a world renowned authority in the field of Potential Energy Landscapes, as a part of the University Immersion Programme of BITS Pilani University.
 
Dr. Ranjan Dey joined BITS Pilani in January 2006 as Assistant Professor. He has more than 20 years of teaching experience having taught a number of discipline, interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary courses at BITS Pilani KK Birla Goa Campus. He has also taught undergraduate and postgraduate students  for seven years in the University of Allahabad, Allahabad.

 He has 73  publications in various peer reviewed journals and is a Reviewer for over 10 international journals. He has been awarded Outstanding Reviewer  from Journal of Molecular Liquids and International Journal of Biological Macromolecules  in recognition  of the contributions made to the quality of the journal. He has more than 1000 citations with an h-index of 15 and an i-10 index of 27.

Over the past few years , Prof. Dey and his group has developed a modified Frenkel approach for predicting viscosity with higher accuracy than the original Frenkel approach with the results published in RSC Advances.
Furthermore, they have developed two new models for predicting viscosity of binary and higher order liquid mixtures and the same has been published in  RSC Advances in 2016.
They have recently developed  a volume fraction based model for predicting viscosity and tested it on 200 binary, a number of ternary and higher order liquid mixtures with very good predictive capability and the same has been published in Journal of Molecular Liquids ( Vol. 265, 356-360,2018).  
 
He is a Member of the National Academy of Sciences India(NASI) , American Chemical Society,  a Fellow of the Indian Chemical Society and also Life Member of a number of Scientific Societies. He has given several Invited talks,  Keynotes, Lecture Series and presented a number of papers in various International and National Conferences, Symposium and Workshops.  He has also been invited to review potential MRSC candidates by the Royal Society of Chemistry. 
In April 2017, Prof. Dey was awarded the "Maanpatra Samman" by BSCA, Allahabad for his contributions to advancement of higher education.
 
Prof. Dey was invited to present his research work at the University of Heidelberg, Heidelberg, Germany on the 13th of July, 2017.  He also  presented a Paper in THERMAM 2017 at the Institute of Technical Thermodynamics at Rostock University, Rostock , Germany on 17th July, 2017. 

In the Summer of 2016, Dr. Dey was invited to teach a Course by NTUST, Taipei Taiwan to ME Chemical Engineering and Doctoral students. He also visited Nanyang Technical University(NTU) and National University of Singapore (NUS) in July 2016 to initiate international collaboration between the Universities and BITS Pilani K K Birla Goa Campus regarding student and faculty exchange for Internships, Ph.D. and joint research projects.  

He attended the 19th Symposium on Thermophysical Properties organised by NIST, AIChE and ASME at Colorado University, Boulder, Colorado , USA held on  20th - 26th June 2015 and presented a paper which was published in Journal of Molecular Liquids in August 2016.
 
Degree: Ph.D. (1997- University of Allahabad)
