Alumnus Surojit Gupta Appointed Assistant Professor at University of North Dakota

Alumnus Dr. Surojit Gupta (Ph.D. 2006) has been appointed assistant professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of North Dakota, effective August 2012. 

Prior to his faculty appointment, he worked as a Faculty Researcher at Rutgers University and acted as a technical advisor and consultant with Solidia Technology, a start-up company funded by Kliner Perkins Caulfield Byers.  His work with Solidia Technology involved the development of novel green structural materials by  CO2 sequestration. He also served as postdoctoral fellow at Pennsylvania State University. There he developed mathematical models to understand the manufacturing process of honeycomb ceramics.

At Drexel University, Gupta conducted his Ph.D. work with Professor Michel Barsoum, working on the synthesis and characterization of different novel ternary carbides and nitrides, known as the MAX Phases. As a part of this study, he and his research group successfully tested MAX Phase based composite shafts in Foil Bearing based Oil Free Turbomachinery.
