EXPERIENCE : Dr. Rajesh Kumar Ranjan has received his M.Sc., M.Phil and Ph.D. degree from School of Environmental Sciences, Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi, India. During PhD, he has migrated as an exchange doctoral student to Geology and Geochemistry department, Stockholm University, Sweden from 2006 and 2008 for his PhD work. Dr. Ranjan joined the Department of Environmental Science, Central University of South Bihar, Gaya, in 2010 as an Assistant Professor. He has experience of teaching and research spanning over more than 10 years.
Dr. Ranjan is a Life Member of Association of Global Groundwater Scientists (AGGS), Coimbatore, India; Fellow and Life Member of Geological Society of India, Bangalore; Life Member Indian Society of Apllied Geochemists) ISAG, Hyderabad and Life Member The Indian Science Congress Association, Kolkata. He has also served as a member of Regional Empowered Committee, East Central Zone, Ranchi, Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change (MOEF&CC), Government of India from 2015 to 2019.
Dr. Ranjan has served as a reviewer in several journals such as Environmental Monitoring and Assessment (Springer), Environmental Earth Sciences (Springer), Applied Geochemistry (Elsevier), Hydrological Processes (Wiley), National Academy of Science Letters (Springer), Marine pollution Bulletin (Elsevier ), Arabian Journal of Geosciences; Environmental Science of Pollution Research (Springer) etc

Dr. Ranjan investigates the carbon dynamics, nutrients, and trace metal biogeochemistry in a variety of systems. But his research mostly focuses on Carbon and nitrogen stable isotopes studies in wetland system; Biomarker studies for recent environmental changes in freshwater wetlands, Estuarine and mangrove ecosystems; River biogeochemistry, Organic and inorganic pollution. In addition, his group also explore the groundwater contamination, particularly Uranium and Fluoride contamination in the groundwater.
