Dr Rohit Gupta

  • Research Associate (Systems Power & Energy)

Biography

I am a postdoctoral research associate in the Division of Systems, Power and Energy within the School of Engineering since October 2021, working on EPSRC program grant: Decentralized Water Technologies. My current research activities involve chemical and thermal process modelling, life cycle assessment, cost-benefit analysis, and multi-objective optimization for combined water-energy-heating systems.

My prior work on thermal management, workload scheduling, waste heat recovery, and reduced-order modelling of high-density data center cooling infrastructures was the basis of my Ph.D. dissertation in mechanical engineering from McMaster University, Canada (2018 - 2021).

For my M.Eng. in Power Engineering from Jadavpur University, India (2016-2018), I worked towards a unique optical diganostic technique (Background Oriented Sclieren Imaging) for characterizing condensation heat transfer from moist air on wettability-engineered surfaces, which was funded by Bhaba Atomic Research Center, India. I received B.Tech in Mechanical Engineering from West Bengal University of Technology, India (2012-2016).

Some of my collaborative research efforts include (1) plasmon biosensors for detecting SARS-CoV-2 spike protein, (2) mathematical modelling of cell migration and proliferation for biological wound healing, (3) simulation of chemical kinetics for multi-step electrode reactions, (4) fault detection in HVAC systems using machine learning, and (5) physics-assisted machine learning models for thermal systems.
