Dr. Arpita Roychoudhury
Arpita has always been enamoured by the interdependence of different branches of science and how an interdisciplinary research approach can address a complex topic more successfully. Following this passion, she took up Biotechnology during Masters.
Arpita studied Biophysics at the Heinrich Heine University, Dusseldorf where she obtained her PhD. Her thesis largely focused on cutting edge spectroscopic techniques to study protein and membrane structure. She has since worked in different renowned labs across India, Belgium and Germany as a post-doctoral research scientist exploring multitude of scientific problem using cutting edge nanotechnology tools. This exposed her to handling and analysing huge data sets using different software. Recently, she quit her job at the Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces, Potsdam to dedicate full time into developing Data Analysis Tools.
