Nilanjan Dasgupta


I pride in my upbringing by a set of extremely dedicated and very good teachers at my School, Nava Nalanda High School. They have influenced my life and have very subtly instilled within me a crave to be a teacher-mentor like them.

Passing out from School, and then Narendrapur Ramakrishna Mission, I graduated with Geology Honours from Presidency College, thereafter PhD from University of Calcutta. Presently I am in service since 1998. Even now I get enthused by my childhood teachers and try to emulate them in upbringing my students.

I specialise in Structural geology, but I do take courses in Mathematical Geology, Geostatistics, Remote Sensing and Geomorphology. My present obsession is to unravel the morphotectonic histories of planet Earth's siblings, mostly Mars.

 I have had some administrative experiences in my service life, and that has enriched my understanding of the processess and philosophy of Higher educational pedagogy. I beleive in the strictness of discipline and encourage my students to be honest in thei approach.
