Sharmistha is presently working as Research Assistant of DPIIT-IPR Chair at NLUJAA. Prior to that, she was working in the capacity of an Assistant Professor of Law at University School of Law & Research under University of Science & Technology, Meghalaya (USTM) for a period of over two years (2018-2020). She has also worked as a Guest Faculty (Assistant Professor in leave vacancy) at NEF Law College in the year 2015. She was also associated with Law Masters Coaching Institute as a Faculty of Law for a period of three years (2015 – 2018) and was simultaneously engaged as a practicing advocate at Gauhati High Court. She also has the experience of working as an Assistant Manager (Projects & Accounts) at Suvidha Consultants Limited (a Project Management Company in Guwahati) from 2009 to 2010.
She has successfully completed her LL.M. degree with a First Class from J.B.

Sharmistha has also presented several research papers at national and international seminars and conferences and has also published a number of papers in books, journals and UGC CARE listed publications.
Being a Commerce graduate, the subject of Intellectual Property has always fascinated Sharmistha and while pursuing LL.B., she was able to understand the ever-increasing scope of IPR related crimes and the way it impacts the society in general. At present, as a Research Scholar pursuing Ph.D., she can very well comprehend to what extent research is productive in taking humanity forward and hence she believes that the opportunity to research, understand and generate consciousness on the subject of IPR under the prestigious DPIIT-IPR Chair of NLUJAA would definitely enable her to be of some service towards the society in augmenting and facilitating IPRs at the grassroot level especially in the North-Eastern Region of India.

Her areas of interest are IP protection including Traditional Knowledge and Traditional Cultural Expressions, Criminology and Human Rights.
