I joined the theory group at the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research as a Postdoctoral fellow in October 2016. My current research focusses on the design of efficient host/guest systems for OLEDs.

I obtained my Ph.D. at Jawaharlal Nehru Centre for Advanced Scientific Research (JNCASR), India under the supervision of Prof. S. Balasubramanian. My Ph.D. research interest was focussed on Ionic Liquids using, molecular modeling for their use in energy and environment applications. I obtained my Master of Science degree, in Material Science, at the JNCASR, in 2013. I received my Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Chemistry, from Visva-Bharati University, India in 2010.

In March 2021 Anirban was appointed associate professor at IIT Gandhinagar.
