Mr. John Patturaj

I am John Patturaj who studied B.Sc. Chemistry and M.Sc. Chemistry in our esteemed college (Nazareth Margoschis College at Pillyanmanai) during the year from 1998-2003 (B.Sc. 1998 to 2001, M.Sc. 2001 to 2003). I am immensely grateful and proud of our college and Professors/Lecturers in our college who taught me Chemistry in a fabulous way. I would really appreciate your commitment to teach the students in an effective way. Due to the foundation from the professors, I could reach a great level in my career. I started my job career in the Pharmaceutical industry and have been doing analytical research and development for the past 19 years. At present, I am working for Sri Krishna Pharmaceuticals Limited as an Assistant General Manager and leading the Analytical Research and Development Department (Head) since Dec 2022.
