General introduction

Dr. Tushar S. Bhatt is a postdoctoral researcher at the Department of Chemical Engineering. He is collaborating with VUB’s academic and industrial partners for conducting his research activities that deal with: enhancing the performance of existing processes and providing a platform to meet future technology challenges.

Research

His current research focuses on the mathematical modeling and experimental investigations of Pressure Swing Adsorption (PSA) processes.

Dr. Bhatt completed his PhD from Politecnico di Milano, Italy, in March 2014. His thesis was titled: Modeling, simulation and experimental investigations of dual-reflux pressure swing adsorption process. While pursuing his PhD, he was also a visiting student at ETH, Institute of Process Engineering, Zürich, Switzerland.

Prior to this, Dr. Bhatt has more than 3 years of work experience at: ‘The Aditya Birla Group’s Corporate R&D Centre’ (ABSTC), where, apart from other R&D activities, he published an international patent.

Dr. Bhatt graduated from the Otto-Von-Guericke University Magdeburg, Germany with the qualification: M.Sc. in Chemical and Process Engineering. During his stay in Germany, he gained R&D experience through: research assistantship at the University and an internship with Internormen Technology GmbH (now Eaton).

In India, he completed a fulltime 4 year Degree program: ‘Bachelor of Technology in Chemical Technology’ from Nagpur University. He was also an in-plant trainee at a major oil & gas company.
