Dr Jyotsna Kaushal


Expert Areas : Synthesis of inorganic compounds, Nano-particles, Water purification, Water analysis

Dr Jyotsna Kaushal is doing research in the area of water purification in which industrial effluent, grey water and drinking water are processed by green technologies i.e. Phytoremediation or rice husk ash. Presently she is also working on STP where conventional and phytoremediation techniques are to be implemented for recycling of water.

Besides this, also working in the synthesis of nanoparticles by green synthesis and its application. She was former dean of Applied Sciences department where students of engineering streams are learning foundation courses in sciences for their first year BE course.

She is a volunteer of international NGO, Art of Living, and she regularly volunteers to go to PGI Drug De-addiction Centre to practice yoga, meditation with the affected patients. She practices Sudharshan Kriya, yoga and meditation. She is also working in villages for spreading awareness of safe drinking water. She is passionate about travelling to various places and reading spiritual books.
