Ben-Gurion University of the Negev
I have been working as a Blaustein Postdoctoral Fellow at the Department of Desalination and Water Treatment, Zuckerberg Institute of Water Research, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, Israel, since July 2020. My research activities are focused on developing advanced membrane materials for water treatment applications. I obtained a Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay (India). My Ph.D. research aimed to provide performance-efficient hollow fiber membranes (HFMs)-based solutions to biomedical engineering, gas separation, and water treatment applications. Notably, novel carbon/metal-based nanomaterials incorporated HFMs were prepared, which exhibited favorable physicochemical properties according to the requirements of the target application. The tailored HFMs demonstrated their efficacy when tested with the close-to-real systems of biomedical engineering and separation applications. I hold an M. Tech. and B.Tech. degree in Chemical Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur (India) and National Institute of Technology Srinagar (India), respectively.
