Dr. Sanyal joined the Department of Chemical and Biomedical Engineering at WVU in June 2020. Her research program aims to develop advanced membranes as the next generation separation tools for water treatment and gas separation. Her areas of interests include, but are not limited to, hypersaline produced water desalination, natural gas upgrading and flue gas purification. Prior to joining WVU, Dr Sanyal was a postdoctoral researcher at Georgia Tech. There she worked on the fundamentals of carbon molecular sieve membranes for gas separation. Her PhD research at Michigan State University was focused on surface-modified membranes for water treatment. She is originally from Calcutta, India and received her undergraduate education from Manipal University, India.
