Dr. Sabyasachi Chattopadhyay

Researcher, CIPR

Dr. Chattopadhyay is currently a researcher in CIPR and is looking into the LA (193 mm) – HR (Element XR) -ICP MS facility at the Radiogenic and Heavy Elements Isotope Lab in CPG. Dr. Chattopadhyay is a geologist by qualification and is involved in setting up of in-situ grain scale geochronological and geochemical analytical facilities at CPG along with processing of rocks and minerals. Dr. Chattopadhyay was a visiting scholar at the School of Natural Sciences, Macquarie University where he worked with Prof. Stephen Foley (a renowned geoscientist) before he moved to KSA to join CIPR – CPG.
