Alakesh Bisai



Alakesh Bisai
B.S.
Ph.D. IIT Kanpur, India
Currently: Assistant Professor, IISER Bhopal
Joined in: 2006

Alakesh was born July 23, 1977 in Midnapore, West Bengal, India. After completing his undergraduate studies from Midnapore College, he decided to move to BHU Varanasi, where he received his Master of Science with in Chemistry. Subsequently, he moved to the IIT Kanpur in 2000 for his doctoral studies in the group of Professor Vinod K. Singh in the area of enantioselective C-C bond forming reactions. After completing his Ph.D. thesis in 2006, he immediately started as a postdoctoral research at the UC Berkeley with Professor Richmond Sarpong where he worked in the area of total synthesis of "miscellaneous" class of Lycopodium alkaloids. In December, 2009 he left UC Berkeley and join IISER Bhopal as an assistant professor of Chemistry. Since then his group is actively engaged in development of methodologies for C-C bond-forming reactions that took advantage of Lewis-acid catalyzed processes, various oxidative coupling reactions, C-H activations, and enantioselective methodologies. In  November, 2013 he was promoted to the rank of Associate Professor in the same Department. Currently, his research group is working on total synthesis of various architecturally complex and biologically active Indole alkaloids.
