B.S. Chanukya

Chanukya B.S. (Ph.D.), completed his Ph.D. from CSIR-Central Food Technological Research Institute, Mysore – India, in 2015. He later worked in food industry in India (2016) and then as an Associate Professor at Bahir Dar University, Ethiopia (2017/18). Dr. Chanukya joined the State Key Lab of Separation Membranes and Membrane processes at the Tianjin Polytechnic University in October 2018. 

Dr. Chanukya’s broad areas of interests are in downstream processing, membrane based advanced separations, process design and optimization, new product development in the field of chemical engineering and food processing.
