Dibyajyoti finished his Bachelor's in Science (Chemistry Hons.) from Dept. of Chemistry, Visva Bharati University, Shantiniketan, West Bengal in 2009. He joined JNCASR, Bangalore as an Integrated Ph.D. student in the Chemistry and Physics of Materials Unit. He completed his Master's in Science degree in 2012 and moved to the Theoretical Sciences Unit of the same institute to undertake his Ph.D. under the supervision of Prof. Swapan K Pati. His Ph.D. was primarily focused on two topics, the charge and heat transport in molecular-devices and magnetism in low-dimensional materials. He completed his Ph.D. in 2016 and moved to the Dept. of Physics and Chemistry, University of Bath, UK as a post-doctoral research associate for 2 years. He worked with Prof. Saiful Islam and Prof. Alison Walker there. The main topics of his research were computational investigation of structural stability, ion migration and photovoltaic properties of halide perovskite solar cells. Following that, from November 2018 to July 2021, Dibyajyoti was a research associate at Los Alamos National Laboratory, USA. His mentors were Dr. Sergei Tretiak and Dr. Amanda Neukirch. There he was involved in several projects, (1) in-silico compositional engineering of optoelectronic materials, (2) adiabatic and non-adiabatic carrier dynamics for solid-state lighting and photocatalysis and (3) machine learning for energy materials design and optimization. He joined the IIT Delhi as an assistant professor in July 2021.
