She has an interdisciplinary research interest which includes environmental contaminants and public health. She was closely linked with water and sanitation projects conducted by the Water Supply and Sanitation Organization, Public Health Engineering Department, Govt. of West Bengal, India. Srimanti has expertise in fast and efficient analytical techniques of multiple targeted chemical residues and a non-targeted analytical approach for organic compounds of interest in environmental samples. Before pursuing her doctoral program, she received a Bachelor of Technology (B. Tech) in Biotechnology from West Bengal University of Technology, and a Master of Technology (M. Tech) in Environmental Biotechnology from Jadavpur University. She is presently an adjunct assistant professor and research specialist at the School of Public Health, San Diego State University, and is associated with a project that deals with detecting and identifying unknown chemical compounds generated from tobacco and cannabis smoke in California natural reserve, leveraging a non-targeted and targeted analysis approach.
