Dr Rohan Dutta

School Director & Associate Professor,
Anant School for Climate Action.

Dr. Rohanis an Associate Professor for the BTech program at the Anant School of Climate Action. He received a BTec.(H) in Instrumentation Engineering from Haldia Institute of Technology, India, in 2003 and a PhD from the Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur, India, in 2014.
Before starting his new venture, he was a postdoctoral Fellow at the Institute for Plasma Research Gandhinagar and at the Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur, India. He worked for nearly 11 years in various academic institutes and industries, pre- and post-PhD, including a postdoctoral position at the Department of Energy and Process Engineering, Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Trondheim, Norway.
His research interests include Waste to Power, Process Modelling and Simulation, Cryogenic Processes, Fossil Fuel-based Power Plant and methods for CO2 capture from them, and Cryogenic/Thermal Energy Storage. He has published more than 35 research papers in international/national journals, conferences, and technical reports. Besides this, Dr. Dutta has one patent application filed in India, and another application has been approved for funding for filing both in India and USA.
