About Arpita Saha

Dr. Saha has joined Georgia Southern University in August 2012. She received her Bachelor of Science degree in 2002 from Presidency University, Kolkata, India. In her master’s degree program (2002 – 2004) at the Indian Institute of Technology,(IIT) Kanpur, India she worked on the synthesis and characterization of carbon nanotubes and the transport of water through the channel of water soluble carbon nanotubes and its interaction with amino acids and DNA. Dr. Saha interned at the Indian Institute of Science,(IISc) Bangalore (2003), where she studied modeling of the trinuclear active site of Ascorbate Oxidase (AO) with spectral and analytical characterization of tri nuclear copper complexes. She joined the doctoral program (2005) at Distinguished Prof. George Christou’s lab at the University of Florida Her doctoral research primarily focused on the investigation of new synthetic routes towards the preparation and subsequent characterization of novel multinuclear metal complexes. After receiving her Ph.D. (2011), Dr. Saha served as an assistant professor at Saginaw valley State University, Michigan (2011 – 2012) and developed various undergraduate collaborative research opportunities on metal-based cluster chemistry. In Summer 2012, she worked with renowned Prof. Herbert W. Roesky, as a visiting faculty at Gӧttingen University in Germany. In Germany, she investigated new synthetic strategies to isolate high oxidation state manganese cluster by employing N-Heterocyclic Carbene.
