Dr.Rhyddhi Chakraborty

Name: Rhyddhi Chakraborty
Qualification: M.A., M.Phil., Ph.D., MBGPH (pursuing), UGC-NET (2012 Lectureship)
Biosketch:  My own history consists of Ph.D. (Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur), M.Phil. (University of Calcutta), M.A. (Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi) in Philosophy. I had undertaken doctoral study on Pandemic Influenza Planning and Management in India from Social Justice perspective. During M.Phil, I had undertaken the study of Deep Ecology and tried to figure out how two great religious traditions; Hinduism and Buddhism promoted Deep Ecology to solve the deep rooted environmental problems in India. My broad research interest is in Applied Ethics, Bioethics. My specific research focus is on Health Inequity, Communicable Diseases, Social Determinants of Health, Indian Health Policy and Planning. In the past, I have served as a Part Time Lecturer in Philosophy in an Undergraduate Degree College under University of Calcutta from 2005-2007. And during 2008-2012, I was a Teaching Assistant for Ethics, Western Logic, Business Ethics in the Department of Humanities and Social Sciences in IIT Kharagpur, India. Currently, I am pursuing a Masters program, in combination-hybrid mode, on Bioethics and Global Public Health from American University of Sovereign Nations (AUSN), USA with the international scholarship from AUSN and my thesis is focusing on Water Ethics. Along with this MBGPH course, as I continue my research as a Bioethicist, in a skilled manner, I have successfully completed United Kingdom National Health Service (NHS) Global Health Exchange-India Project on Curriculum Development of Professionalism and  Medical Ethics during 2015-2016. I acted as a group Leader of developing curriculum and content on Ethics in Beginning and End of Life Care.
