Dr. Bhaskar De completed his doctoral research titled “Optimization of Orientation and Canyon Aspect Ratio for a Warm Humid City” in 2018 from Indian Institute of Technology, Roorkee. He obtained his Masters of Architecture degree also from IIT Roorkee in 2012 and completed his Bachelor of Architecture in 2010 from Indian Institute of Engineering, Science and Technology, Shibpur (erstwhile Bengal Engineering and Science University) with First Class.
Presently, he is a Faculty member in the Department of Architecture Town and Regional Planning, Indian Institute of Engineering, Science and Technology, Shibpur, India, since 2019. After completion of his doctoral research, he worked as a researcher project fellow in the Centre of Excellence in Disaster Mitigation and Management of Indian Institute of Technology, Roorkee for a short while. He had also served as a Lecturer in National Institute of Technology, Hamirpur, India, from 2012 to 2013.
His research interest lies in the fields of Sustainable Architecture, Urban Heat Island and Global Climate Change, Urban Green Infrastructure, urban climate study, Climate Responsive Urban Planning and Design, Indoor and Outdoor Thermal Comfort, Building Energy Studies, Energy Efficient Retrofitting, Application of remote sensing and GIS for Climate Change Mitigation strategies and Application of CFD and Numerical Simulation Models in Urban Climate Studies.
He was awarded research fellowships from the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India, from 2010 to 2012 and from 2013 to 2018. He had received the student award for presenting his research in 4th IC2UHI- 2016 conference, held in Singapore. He was also awarded the prestigious Erasmus plus Fellowship in the year 2018.
