Arnab Mukherjee did his B. Sc from Jadavpur university, Kolkata in 1998. He then joined Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore as an integrated PhD student in chemical sciences. He completed his Ph. D. from S. S. C. U. department of IISc Bangalore in 2005 under the supervision of Professor Biman Bagchi. Dr. Mukherjee then went for his postdoctoral research with J. T. Hynes in Ecole Normale Superierure, Paris, France from 2005 to 2007 and then to University of Colorado, Boulder from 2007 to 2009. He then joined IISER Pune as an assistant professor in November, 2009. He became Associate Professor in 2015 and  Professor in 2021 . Dr. Mukherjee works on the computational biophysics area such as drug-DNA intercalation, DNA structural change, single water entropy, protein folding and protein-DNA binding, dynamical recrossing and internal friction in proteins, etc. Recently, he has started working on machine learning and deep learning approaches to biophysical problems such as DNA conformation prediction, drug likeness, reaction coordinate prediction, etc. He also collaborates with experimental colleagues in various projects such as synthetic ion channels, spectroscopic investigation of molecular recognition, etc. He has over ten years of teaching experience at IISER Pune.
