  Professional Background

Dr. Anupam Roy is currently working as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Chemical Engineering at Birla Institute of Technology Mesra, Ranch, Jharkhand. He has received his Ph.D. in the field of Food Engineering from IIT Kharagpur. Before that, he has completed his M. Tech in Chemical Engineering and B. Tech in Food Technology from Haldia Institute of Technology, West Bengal. Dr. Roy’s research interest is Novel techniques in Food Processing with a special focus in developing process technology for fortified cereals and rice with enhanced resistant content. With the help of funding agencies (DST, ICMR, ICMR-DHR and DBT), he is now trying to develop process technologies for whole grain rice fortification and enhancement of resistant starch content in whole Rice grain. He also prefers to work on process standardization and mechanization of traditional Indian food.
