Dr. Sanjay Kumar

Assistant Professor



Research Interests: Characterization of soft matter, Rheology of complex fluids, Polymer nanocomposites, Self-assembly of block polymer, Ultra-filtration membrane for water purification.


Working as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Chemical Engineering at BMS College of Engineering since 2021. Prior to this, I worked as an Assistant Professor under the TEQIP-III project at BTKIT Dwarahat for 2.6 years, and AEC Guwahati for 8 months. Worked on a sponsored project as a PI under a collaborative research scheme, which was sponsored by NPIU & AICTE.
The focus of research is to explore the colloidal system from a fundamental as well as practical point of view using various advanced instrumental techniques such as X-ray/Neutron scattering, rheology, dielectric relaxation spectroscopy, etc., Such type of systems are widely encountered in several industries such as agriculture, pharmaceutical, food, paints, ink, coating, etc. Various key problems need to be addressed such as colloidal stability, their flow behavior, the interaction between particle-polymer-solvent, the structure formed at mesoscales, the manifestation of these interactions at a bulk level, etc.
