Dr. Bhabani K. Satapathy
Dr. Bhabani K. Satapathy did his Ph.D. from IIT Delhi in the area of polymer composites and specifically on the tribological aspects of composites for automotive braking applications. He subsequently pursued his research career as a Postdoctoral fellow at Leibniz Institute of Polymer Research Dresden (IPF Dresden) and in Mechanics of Functional Materials (MfM) group of Institute of Material Science and Technology at Friedrich Schiller University Jena, Germany. He also has an M. Tech. degree in Polymer Science and Engineering from IIT Delhi. His main research interests are on phase behaviour, tribology and fracture mechanics of polymer based blends, composites, block copolymers and allied materials. He has more than 90 publications in international journals and about 40 contributions in seminars/conferences and workshops.
