Biography

Dr. Sivamohan Reddy obtained his Bachelor degree in Chemical Engineering in Gayatri Vidya Parishad College of Engineering, India. Later, he moved to Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur, India to finish his Master’s degree. He joined the Indian Institute of Science in Bangalore, India to obtain his Doctorate degree in Chemical Engineering. He was a post-doctoral fellow in the Department of Earth & Space Science & Engineering at York University, Canada. He is presently an Assistant Professor in Chemical Engineering at Indian Institute of Technology Roorkee, India.

His research work focuses on supercritical fluid technologies for environment, energy, separations and extractions. In addition, his interest towards the high pressure phase equilibrium made him to explore the various models and experimental techniques to understand the multi-component systems. Precisely, his research investigations concentrate on high pressure processes (supercritical carbon dioxide mixtures, experimental and modeling of multi-component phase equilibrium in supercritical carbon dioxide, rapid expansion of supercritical solutions, hydrothermal flames, supercritical water oxidation in flame/flameless mode, and supercritical water gasification). Sivamohan's research at York University was related to generation of hydrothermal flames for treatment of several toxic wastes in a supercritical water oxidation reactor initially designed by National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).

 

Research Interests

  • Hydrothermal flames for treatment of wastes generated in spaceships, medical operations and e-wastes.
  • Partial oxidation and gasification of organics in supercritical water  to generate fuels.
  • Experimental and modeling of multi-component phase equilibrium in supercritical fluids.
