Dutta Uttam has completed his BSc degree from Ramakrishna Mission Vivekananda Centenary College, Rahara (West Bengal State University) with Chemistry being the major discipline in 2011. Later, he received his Masters degree from Indian Institute of Technology Bombay (IITB) in 2013 with a specialization in Chemistry, specifically focusing on Inorganic Chemistry. He was involved in a year-long project under the supervision of Dr. D. Maiti on C-H functionalisation of important organic molecules using iron-catalyzed methodologies during his MSc at IITB. The result has been communicated in an international journal. Catalysis, he believes is an emerging field, which is potent enough to revolutionize synthesis. He is extremely interested to pursue work in the field of catalytic methodology development to carry out organic transformation. He will work on the topic, ‘Metal Mediated Synthesis of Nitroalkanes, Nitroolefins and Nitroaromatics’ under the supervision of Prof. Debabrata Maiti (IIT Bombay) and David Lupton (Monash University). Listening to soft music, reading fiction and playing cards are some of his hobbies.
