Dr. Sreelakshmi Diddi

Assistant Professor



Research Interests: Chemical Engineering, Environmental Chemical Engineering, Soil Remediation.


I have a keen interest to utilize my chemical engineering background to provide solutions for societal and environmental issues. My doctoral research is on remediation of crude oil contaminated sand using surfactants. The study and work experience that I gathered at National Institute of Technology – Trichy (NITT) and at College of Engineering Andhra University have given me the foundation to focus on applying chemical engineering knowledge to solve problems in engineering and society. This esteemed institution has provided me the platform to pursue my interest. I have five publications in national and international journals/conferences. My teaching responsibilities include core and elective chemical engineering subjects. Proctoring, Curriculum development, Convening Finishing schools are some of the varied responsibilities that have helped me in developing into a multifaceted individual.
