Personal profile

Research profile

Dr. Sanjeeb Mohapatra is a Marie Skłodowska Curie (MSC) Fellow at the Faculty of Civil Engineering and Geosciences. Prior to this position, he served as a Postdoctoral Research Scientist at the National University of Singapore. Dr. Mohapatra is the recipient of several prestigious awards and fellowships, including the Marie Curie Fellowship from the EU, the Newton Bhabha PhD Placement Fellowship from the British Council, the Water Advanced Innovation Fellowship from the Indo-U.S. Science and Technology Forum (IUSSTF), and the INSPIRE fellowship from the Department of Science and Technology India.

His research primarily focuses on identifying and quantifying emerging contaminants (ECs) and evaluating their fate during wastewater treatment. He employs cutting-edge high-resolution mass spectrometry (HRMS) technology for this purpose. Through the Marie Skłodowska Curie (MSC) Fellowship, Dr. Mohapatra aims to develop a novel photoanode to remove emerging contaminants (ECs) such as pharmaceuticals, poly- and perfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs), and antimicrobial resistance genes (ARGs) through photoelectrochemical oxidation (PEC) of secondary treated wastewater (sewage).

Research interests

● Detection, occurance and fate of emerging contaminants (ECs)

● Photoelectrochemical degradation of ECs such as antibiotics and PFAS

● Wastewater-based epidemiology

● Wastewater reuse and circular economy

● Dissolved organic matter and wastewater proteomics
