Dr. Nupur

Dr. Nupur

Assistant Professor, Life Science


She completed her Doctorate at the CSIR Institute of Microbial Technology in Chandigarh after receiving her CSIR-NET qualification in 2010. She received her doctoral degree from Jawaharlal University, Delhi (2016). She then started working as a guest professor at Amity University (Greater Noida) for one year (2017). Then, she joined the Czech Academy of Sciences as a postdoctoral scholar till 2021. Her area of expertise is in culturing and characterization of anoxygenic phototrophic bacteria (AnPB); purification and identification of carotenoids; and physiological studies of AnPB.
