The recipient of 2019 Lee Hsun Lecture Series—Lee Hsun Lecture Award, Prof. Sudipta Seal from [...]
Dr. Sudipta Seal joined the Advanced Materials Processing and Analysis Center (AMPAC) and Materials Science & Engineering at the University of Central Florida in 1997. He has been consistently productive in research, instruction, and service to UCF since 1998. He has served as NanoInitiative Coordinator for the Vice-President of Research & Commercialization. He is currently a Professor and Chair of Materials Science and Engineering.
Dr. Seal’s outstanding research has developed surface engineered nanoscale transition metal and rare earth oxide ceramics for catalysis, energetics, and nano-biomedicine. He has developed scalable methods for template free nano-oxide particles. He engineered nanoceria (3-5 nm) with switchable valence states with regeneration capability. Using a similar concept, his team developed spherical nano-ZrO2 ceramics without doping with the metastable tetragonal crystal structure and explained the reduced activation energy for grain growth in nano-YSZ and other binary oxides.
CONFERENCES on Materials Science and Engineering
The University of Central Florida and the National University of Singapore are jointly organizing an Advanced Level Conference on Nano-Micromaterials for Circular economy and Sustainability in the East Asia Pacific in beautiful Singapore. This conference will provide an opportunity to discuss important research activities relating to circular economy and sustainability of nano-micro materials which include, but not limited to, the fundamental and applied research on the chemistry of reusable industrial material, new green nanostructured materials; recycle and reuse of nano- and micromaterials, eco-friendly production of materials, biological interactions of regenerated nanoscale materials and related products, simulation and theoretical analysis towards the regeneration of nano and micro materials and their structures in nanomedicine, energy and industrial applications, life-cycle aspects. Special focus will be given to transformation, toxicity, and the interactions of nanotechnology with the biological system. We welcome all researchers to participate, present the research findings and learn more about circular economy and sustainability, networking and build relationships and partnerships in the field.
