Postdoctoral Research Associate

Bio

Dr. Sreshtha Sinha Majumdar is a postdoctoral reseach associate at the Fuels, Engines, and Emissions Research Center (FEERC). She received her Bachelor of Engineering (B.E.) degree in Chemical Engineering from the University of Mumbai (India) in 2007. Following this she worked in the industry, first in a prestigious information technology company, Wipro Ltd. in Bangalore, India and then at Johnson Matthey Chemicals India Pvt. Ltd. in Mumbai, India. Before pursuing her doctoral studies in the U.S. in 2011, she was also appointed as visiting faculty in the chemical engineering department at D.J. Sanghvi College of Engineering, University of Mumbai in India for a semester. Sreshtha received her M.S. (2014) and her Ph.D. (2016) degrees in chemical engineering at the Ohio State Universiy in Columbus, Ohio for her work in catalytic reduction of nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions with lower hydrocarbons for natural gas-fired lean-burn engines. As part of her research there, she developed a novel technique of wash-coating Pd-based catalysts onto monolith cores while maintaining its catalytic activity for NOx reduction for practical applications in an after-treatment unit. The wash-coat developed was hydrothermally stable, had superior sulfur tolerance with enhanced adhesive properties when compared to the powder catalyst. As the safety officer in her research group at the Ohio State University, she has also received multiple awards for maintaining the safety standards of the laboratory. Currently, at FEERC, she is working on examining the potential emission impacts of novel biofuel components and on investigating the properties of low temperature adsorber materials.
