About


Ashraf Alam is currently associated with IIT Kharagpur.

He was conferred with the Award "Emerging Researcher of the Year" during the event "Education Icon Awards", an initiative by the Indian Council of Social Science Research (ICSSR), Government of India, in October 2021.

Ashraf is an independent researcher and has published more than 100 research papers in reputed international journals, all of which are indexed in SCOPUS and/or Web of Science. Most of his research is published by Taylor and Francis, Elsevier, Springer, Wiley, Emerald, IEEE, and Sage.

He has given invited talks and presented research papers on diverse issues at more than 120 national and international conferences and seminars.

He has been awarded UGC's Research Fellowship (JRF) in these academic disciplines:

1. Education,

2. Public Administration,

3. Adult & Continuing Education

He believes that people live happy, free and fulfilling lives only when they themselves, and everyone else around are also happy, free, equal, and respectful.

And this is the kind of environment he has tried to create through his published research in the fields of education, development and sustainability.

He works at the crossroads of research and action for sustainable development, focusing on policies that impact the vulnerable.
