About Me

Ranjan Mukherjee

Ranjan Mukherjee

Speaker, Traveler, Littérateur and Retired Scientist.

I am an author, speaker, traveler, photographer, and retired scientist. I enjoy traveling, and am especially fond of natural, rugged beauty, jungles and wildlife. I  write on my experiences and adventures in different countries, life and leisure and current events that  interest me. I love talking about my experiences in the wild tracking the tiger in India, the rhino in Nepal and my trips to China and Europe. These presentations bring out in words and pictures the beauty and excitement of visiting these exotic places.

I have published a book titled Living Free, Living Well: My Life as a Zen Bon Vivant. How I Retired at 58: A Guide & Memoir. This book is on planning for and enjoying retirement, a short simple roadmap to happiness, and is available as paperback and eBook on Amazon.com.

I translated several famous Bengali short stories into English. This collection, a joint effort by several translators, titled Treasures from Bengal- An Anthology of Selected Bengali Short Stories, is also available on Amazon.

I have a M. Sc. in Physics (University of Calcutta) and a Ph. D. in Biology (University of Delaware). I have worked for over 20 years in the Biotech and Pharmaceutical industry. My career switch from science to literature was fortuitous and instructive.  You can read about it in The Winding Road, and Three Careers across Three Continents. My scientific profile is on Linkedin.
