Dr. Abhishek RoyChowdhury is an assistant professor of Environmental Science at Navajo Technical University.

Crownpoint, NM – Navajo Technical University Environmental Science and Natural Resources professor Dr. Abhishek RoyChowdhury’s research was published by Elsevier for his peer reviewed work on Algal Research with five coresearchers from the Department of Civil, Environmental & Ocean Engineering at Stevens Institute of Technology. Elsevier is a Dutch publishing and analytics company that specializes in scientific, technical, and medical content.

Algal growth relates to or is a characteristic of algae. In the study, Dr. RoyChowdhury and his colleagues sought to elucidate the toxicity response of microalgae by performing growth-inhibition assays using solutions of single compounds and mixtures of energetic compounds and heavy metals. The team used Scenedesmus obliquus as its model, which is a freshwater green microalga.

“I want to involve my students in various innovative research activities and/or real-world problem solving through my courses and research projects,” stated Dr. RoyChowdhury, who came to NTU in November 2019. “I strongly believe that this approach will help those who are planning for a career in industry after graduation as well as those who are interested in pursuing an academic career to further explore the intricacies and complexities of anthropogenically mediated environmental systems.”

Dr. RoyChowdhury obtained his Bachelor of Science in Biology with a focus on Zoology and Master of Science in Environmental Science from University of Calcutta in India. He then attended Montclair State University in New Jersey to obtain his Ph.D. in Environmental Management. After graduation, he then went on to Stevens Institute of Technology (SIT) as a Postdoctoral Fellow. He specializes in the fields of environmental geoscience (environmental clean-up) and sustainable energy production. His real-world problem-solving experience is based on a number of pollutants’ (industrial, agricultural, and pharmaceuticals) fate and transport in various environmental matrices.

“Through Dr. RoyChowhury’s work, the environmental science students will gain appreciation for the importance of peer-reviewed, published research,” explained NTU provost Dr. Colleen W. Bowman. “This may spark an interest in the use of research as a spring-board for their own research projects to solve some of the real-world environmental issues on the Navajo Nation. NTU continues to support faculty research and congratulates Dr. RoyChowhury on his accomplishment.”

Dr. RoyChowdhury has published more than 12 peer reviews journal articles and book chapters. In spring 2020, he instructed a course on how to write a successful research proposals and research articles where students received developmental skills in scientific writing.

NTU’s Bachelor of Science degree program in Environmental Science and Natural Resources is designed to meet the needs of tribal, state, and federal environmental and natural resources management and enforcement entities.
