Professor Sudipta Roy

Head Of Department

Chemical and Process Engineering

Personal statement

I completed my BTech in Chemical Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi in 1985. After working in India for just over a year I studied for MS (1990) and PhD degrees (1992) in Chemical Engineering from Tulane University in the USA. I then spent nearly three years as postdoctoral scientist at the materials department in EPFL in Switzerland, before moving to Newcastle University in the UK in 1994 to take up a position as lecturer in Chemical Engineering. I was promoted to Reader in 2000 and then to a personal chair in Electrochemical Nanomaterials in 2005. In 2015 I moved to the University of Strathclyde where I am currently Professor of Chemical Engineering and Head of Department. I am a Fellow of the IChemE, IMF and a Chartered Engineer.

Teaching

In my teaching career I have taught a wide range of undergraduate and postgraduate courses in chemical engineering including: physical chemistry, reactor engineering, materials stability, micro-technology and sustainability, electrochemical engineering, design and undergraduate laboratories. At Newcastle University I was the Director of post-graduate degree programmes between 2004 and 2013 and Faculty Research Postgraduate Tutor. I have also organised and lectured on corrosion and electrodeposition in a number of CPD-type courses in the UK, USA and the Netherlands. At Strathclyde University my main teaching activity is coordinating fourth year Chemical Process Design.

Research interests

I am interested in employing electrochemistry and electrochemical engineering to fabricate novel materials at the micro- and nano-scales. The applications of my research are in corrosion mitigation, manufacturing micro and nano devices for electronics and implants, and the removal of toxic substances from effluents. Much of the work embraces principles of green chemistry for sustainable process development.
