Welcome to my home page!

Tread lightly for this site is under construction!


I am Jeevanjyoti Chakraborty. I am an Assistant Professor in the Mechanical Engineering Department of the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Kharagpur. I joined here in August, 2016.

I work on the mathematical modelling of various situations involving fluid mechanics and solid mechanics, coupled occasionally with bits of electrochemistry. Currently, two focus areas of my work are investigating fluid flow through deformable confinements and investigating issues of diffusion, growth and stress in silicon anode particles of lithium-ion batteries.

A brief outline of my academic background can be found here.
