Brief Bio:
Dr. Biswas is an internationally renowned aerosol scientist. His research interests are in aerosol science and engineering, air quality and pollution control, environmental nanotechnology and benign synthesis of novel materials. His research focuses on understanding the formation and growth of particles in high temperature environments and using this understanding at either producing novel nanostructured materials, or preventing the emission of harmful ultrafine particles. He has graduated 20 doctoral students to date, published more than 150 articles and has been invited to lecture at many universities and agencies worldwide
