Rahul Banerjee, Associate editor
CSIR-National Chemical Laboratory, India
Rahul Banerjee received his PhD degree from University of Hyderabad, Hyderabad in 2006 under the supervision of Prof. Gautam R. Desiraju. After a postdoctoral work in UCLA with Prof. Omar M. Yaghi (2006-2008), he joined CSIR-National Chemical Laboratory, Pune, India in 2008 as a Scientist. His research interests include the study of structural chemistry with the flavor of chemical synthesis to design new materials for hydrogen storage, carbon sequestration and catalysis. Additionally, his group is also engaged in design and synthesis of lightweight materials for storage, capture and proton conduction. Prof. Banerjee is an editorial board member and associate editor of CrystEngComm. He has also served as a co-editor of Acta Crystallographica Section E in 2011-2012. Prof. Banerjee has been invited to become a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry in 2013 in recognition of his significant contribution to Chemical Science and, in particular, to his work on the board of CrystEngComm. He has published more than 100 papers and one book chapter since 2003.
