Anutosh Chakraborty is an Associate Professor at the School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering of Nanyang Technological University (NTU) Singapore. He obtained his BSc Eng from BUET Bangladesh. He then obtained MEng and PhD in Mechanical Engineering from the Department of Mechanical Engineering, National University of Singapore (NUS). After graduation, Dr Chakraborty worked at the Institute for Materials, Chemistry and Engineering, Kyushu University, Japan as a lecturer (2006 – 2007). He was then awarded the JSPS fellowship. He joined the MAE NTU in 2010 as an Assistant Professor and promoted to a tenured Associate Professor in 2017. He has trained 8 PhDs and 5 post-doctoral fellows. He has published 5 book chapters 6 patents and more than 150 peer-reviewed papers.
Dr Chakraborty’s research has been focusing on (i) the heat and mass transfer of thermally driven systems such as cooling machines or chillers and heat pumps for air conditioning applications, (ii) functional porous adsorbents and adsorption thermodynamics for solid-vapor interactions, (iii) renewable energy driven solid state cooling, desalination and gas storage especially H2 and NH3.
Dr Chakraborty received ‘Dr S K Leung Excellence in Teaching Awards’ in 2015, and IES (Institution of Engineers Singapore) Prestigious Engineering Achievement Awards for adsorption desalination development. He is the PI and Co-PI of several projects funded by A*STAR MND, MCERP, MOE, NTU internal and NRF Competitive Research Program.
(1) Adsorption Thermodynamics.
(2) Adsorption/Absorption refrigeration/Heat Pump Systems and Desalination
(3) Adsorption Gas (Methane/Hydrogen) Storage, Surface science.
(4) Pool boiling at sub-atmospheric pressure, Flow boiling, Condensation.
(5) Micro/Nano-Scale Transport Phenomena.
(6) Bulk and Nanostructured thermoelectric device and their simulation tools.
