Published: Feb 21, 2014

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Feb. 21, 2014) — The North American Membrane Society (NAMS) recently elected University of Kentucky professor Dibakar Bhattacharyya as their new president starting in June 2015.

 

NAMS promotes further development and understanding of membranes and the membrane process. It is the only professional society in North America that promotes all aspects of membrane science and technology.

 

NAMS chose Bhattacharyya for this position because of his leadership in the field of membrane technology, where his group pioneered a membrane system to provide a green method for the remediation of ground water.

 

"Dr. Bhattacharyya being elected as president of NAMS is a remarkable testament to his outstanding record of productivity in membrane research," said Allan Butterfield, director of the Center of Membrane Sciences at UK. "He certainly deserves this honor and recognition, which is so good for the University of Kentucky and the UK Center of Membrane Sciences."

 

Bhattacharyya is currently an alumni professor of chemical engineering and serves as a co-founder of the UK Center for Membrane Sciences. Bhattacharyya has received numerous of awards for his research and educational accomplishments, including the 2004 Kirwan Prize for Outstanding Research.
