He is the “Distinguish Research Professor” at Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and acting as Chair Professor and Group Leader (Chief-Scientist & Faculty Fellow) position in Wuhan University, Wuchang Dist., Hubei, Republic of China. Before, he worked as a “Visiting Professor” at IIUCN, School of Energy Materials, Mahatma Gandhi University, Kottayam, Kerala. He received his Ph.D. in from University of Kalyani in the year of 2013 at multidisciplinary Sciences e.g. Liquid crystals, Nanoscience and Nanotechnology, advanced Materials Science and spectroscopic investigation, opto-electronics and switchable device modulation techniques. Most significant prestigious awards “Marie-Curie Experienced Researcher (Postdoctoral Fellow)” offered by the European Commission in Greece and “Brain Korea (BK-21) National Research Foundation Visiting Scientist Fellowship” in South Korea achieved in his research career. He was appointed “Senior Postdoctoral Fellow” at Wuhan University, China and within a year achieved a prestigious position “Chief-Scientist & Faculty (CAS) Fellow” by Chinese Academy of Science. He also served as “Research Professor (Group Leader & Independent Scientist)”, at Bharath University (BIHER), Research & Development, ChennaiIndeed, his current spans and brilliant discoveries are focusing e.g. Nanofabrication, functional Materials, condensed matter physics (Expt.), CNTs/graphene, liquid crystal, polymeric nanocomposite, switchable device, electron microscopy and spectroscopy, bio-inspired materials, drug delivery, tissue engineering, cell culture and integration, switchable device modulation, flexible and transparent electrodes, supercapacitor, optoelectronics, green chemistry, and biosensor applications. His outstanding research finding and novelty published around 65-articles in several international top-tier journals likewise: IOP Nanotechnology, Royal Chemical Society, Elsevier, Springer, IEEE publications got the highest citation in every year and performed editing 15-book’s chapters and 6-Review Articles. Those outstanding articles are mostly published in top-tier International peer reviewed journals & reputed magazines, e.g. Nanotechnology, J. of Materials Chemistry C, Materials Letters, J. of Display technology, Applied Surface Science, Science of Advance Materials,Organic Electronics, Materials Research Express, J. of Materials Science: Materials in Electronics, Bioresources, RSC Advances, Nanoscale, Applied Materials Today. Throughout his academic experiences, skills and research background deserve him as an editorial board member of significant SCI or SCOPUS - indexed Journals, and International publishers since last year reviewed around 150 articles. Prof. Pal is an expert group leader as well as the associate member of various scientific societies, reorganizations and professional bodies. He was the chairperson of 28-National or International events, Symposium, Conferences, Workshops, Summer Internship organized, and himself contributed around 10-Plenary, 25- Keynote and 30-Invited lectures worldwide. As an expert group leader he belongs to worldwide professional research collaboration and spans engaging him in many R & D Industrial organizations and National/International scientific societies like: IEEE Fellow, Associate member of Royal Society of Chemistry (AMRSC),International Liquid Crystal Society (ILCS) and so on. Also supervised significant numbers of Masters-3, PhD-6 & Postdoctoral 4 scholars are actively working worldwide National & International research Universities and Institution.
