Sandip Munshi


I have done my M.Phil from Jadavpur University. While in Queen’s, I will be working under the erudite supervision of Dr. Amitava Chowdhury and will be focusing on examining the global aspect and importance of Indian saltpetre as a primary ingredient of gunpowder in the European and global market (18th- 19th century).

Apart from my academic focus, I am a very keen nature lover and interested in outdoor sports mainly mountaineering and hiking.
