Expert Areas : Materials Chemistry, Nanomaterials, Remediation of groundwater and environmental contaminants, Drinking water and waste water Treatment, Surface and Interfacial Chemistry
Dr. Amulya Prasad Panda is presently working as an Assistant Professor in the department of CURIN at Chitkara University, Punjab. He has received his Ph.D. from Birla Institute of Technology, Mesra, specializing in materials chemistry with water treatment applications. He has authored/co-authored in high-impact (IF > 15) peer-reviewed journal publications. He also has developed (IN patent granted) a simplified and affordable and arsenic filter, which is now in the process of commercialization.
He has awarded with CSIR-SRF, Govt. of India for his doctoral research work and also received first prizes in various international conferences. Along with his Ph.D., he has worked as a Research Fellow (02-year JRF and 01-year SRF) for 3 years under a BRNS-sponsored project, which was awarded with “Excellent Grade”. Here, he has gained invaluable experience in both lab and pilot scale research experiments related to water treatment.
His research interests centred around developing sustainable materials for solving various environmental problems (water and waste water treatment, heterogeneous catalysis) and understanding their chemistry at molecular levels. With the help of present expertise, he would like to expand his research by developing sustainable materials and end-user products for solving real-life problems.
