Most publications (ca. 44, including Reviews and Reference Module), book chapters and patent were published after PhD. The major contribution of his research work is in the areas of chemistry of oxidovanadium(IV/V) and non-oxido vanadium(IV) complexes and their applications. Another area of his work concerns the synthesis of polynuclear complexes with interesting magnetic properties. He jointly supervised with the group leader 1 postdoc, 1 Ph.D., 2 Master and more than 9 ERUSMUS students. He participated in four research projects (Project No. PEst-OE/QUI/UI0100/2013 (BL/CQE-2014-023, PTDC/QUI-QUI/102150/2008, PTDC/QUI-QUI/119561/2010-BL/CQE-2013-009 and PTDC/QEQ-QIN/3967/2014), funded by FCT, Portugal. He is also active as a reviewer for various international scientific journals, e.g. Dalton Transactions, RSC advances, Inorganica Chimica Acta, Journal of Coordination Chemistry, Catalysis Communications etc. He was also a part-time lecturer (2003 – 2007) at the Department of Chemistry, Maulana Azad College (A Degree College under University of Calcutta), Kolkata, India. He received Young Scientist Award 2006 from Indian Chemical Society, India, and Sir P. C. Ray Research Award 2006 from the University of Calcutta, India.
