Dr. N.C. Mondal received B.Sc. Physics (Hons.) degree from Burdwan University, West Bengal and M.Sc. Tech. Geophysics from Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi. He obtained his Ph.D. in Geophysics from CSIR-NGRI & Osmania University, Hyderabad in 2005 and also pursued Advance Groundwater Modeling Study at Texas A&M University, USA under the BOYSCAST Programme.

Presently Dr. Mondal is working as a Scientist of Earth Process Modeling Group, CSIR-National Geophysical Research Institute, Hyderabad, India & holding Assistant Professor in Faculty of Physical Sciences, Academy of Scientific & Innovative Research (AcSIR). His principal research topics encompassed in groundwater exploration, seawater intrusion, groundwater modeling and entropy theory in water resources. He has developed (1) efficient & versatile technique for estimation of groundwater potential zones, (2) an Index called Saline Water Mixing Index (SWMI) for evaluating the relative degrees of saline water mixing, (3) a new innovative entropy-based model for assessing natural groundwater reserve, and (4) also interaction-based model for assessing the degrees of hydrogeological vulnerability.

Dr. Mondal has actively participated in establishing the Pilot Project on Aquifer Mapping (AQUIM), India in the collaboration with CGWB & Aarhus University, Denmark.

He has credited 76-Research Articles in International & Indian Journals; 15-Chapters in Books and 43-Technical Reports. He has completed 5-M.E./M.Tech. Theses jointly with the Professors of Osmania University (Hyderabad), NIT-Warangal and Mahatma Gandhi Chitrakoot Gramodaya Vishwavidyalaya (Chitrakoot). He has also guided the students of  SRTM Univ.-Nanded, Andhra University and BR Ambedkar Univ.-Srkakulam.

He is member(s) of European Water Resources Association (EWRA), International Association of Hydrogeologists (IAH), International Association of Hydrological Sciences (IAHS), Association of Hydrologists of India (AHI), Indian Association of Hydrologists (IAH) & Association of Global Groundwater Scientists (AGGS). He is presently Associate Editor-AGGS Journal of Ground Water Research, and Advisory Board Member for BIOINFO Environmental & Pollution.   

He is the recipent of the BOYSCAST Fellowship (2009-10). He also visited to USA, Singapore & Mauritius for presenting his research findings.
