Curriculum Vitae


Dr. Shiblee Ratan Barua obtained his Bachelors degree in Physics and Mathematics at Berea College in Berea Kentucky USA in May 2008. Afterwards, he received his PhD in Computational Quantum Chemistry at the University of Georgia in Athens Georgia USA in May 2014. Next, he served as a Full-Time Chemistry Lecturer at California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo California USA for a year. He served as an Assistant Professor of Chemistry at the Department of Biochemistry & Microbiology under the School of Health and Life Sciences in NSU from January 2016 to May 2017. Currently, he is on a research leave at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland USA.

Dr. Barua's research interests are in ab initio quantum chemistry, high-level electronic structure computations, vibrational IR spectra simulation, quantum tunneling analyses, theoretical reaction kinetics, and astrochemistry.
