Dr. Pargin Bangotra

Assistant Professor, Physics

pargin.bangotra@sharda.ac.in

About

I am Dr. Pargin Bangotra and I have completed my M.SC (Physics, 2009 -2011) and PhD (Nuclear and Radiation Physics, April 2017) from Dr. B.R Ambedkar National Institute of Technology, Jalandhar.

 I joined Radiation Physics Laboratory of Dr. BRA National Institute of Technology (India) as Junior Research Fellow (2011-2013) and Senior Research Fellow (2013-2016) under research project sponsored by Department of Atomic Energy and Board of Research in Nuclear Sciences with collaboration of Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (Mumbai). My dissertation work is based on the alpha spectrometry, gamma spectrometry, heavy metal analysis, assessment of radiological dose received by the residents and estimation of dose conversion factors for contaminated areas

In 2016, I joined I.K.G Punjab Technical University as an Assistant professor (Guest Faculty) in Department of Applied Physics. I taught Computational Physics, Mathematical Physics and Engineering Physics. I like to teach Computational programming and Numerical Methods. In 2017 and 2018, I taught same Computational Physics and Engineering physics subjects in Dr. B.R.A National Institute of Technology and K.M.V College. In order to teach best to my students, I try to learn about their interest and future goals.
