Polisetti Veerababu is currently working as WARI intern (INDO-US) in Professor Siamak Nejati’s research group, currently he is investigating the phase inversion method to fabricate Ultrafiltration (UF) membranes, specifically aiming on solvent–resistance polymers and Ionic Liquid (IL) as novel solvents. He trying to relate the phase inversion behaviour to the resulting membrane properties both for a fundamental understanding of membrane formation and new polymer – solvent system for separation of Organic Solvents by Nanofiltration membranes (OSN) at harsh conditions. He is also developing membranes and membrane based processes for aqueous application especially waste water treatment.

Polisetti Veerababu pursuing Ph.D. Under the Guidance of Dr. Paramita Ray at Membrane Science and Separation Technology Division CSIR- Central Salt & Marine Chemicals Research Institute, Gujarat-India. He mostly focusing on the studies on the Development of high flux antifouling Nanofiltration membranes. His research interests are in wastewater treatment using Thin Film Composite (TFC) membranes. He is working on modified polymeric blends and hydrophilic interpenetrating polymer networks (IPN) based anti-fouling Nanofiltration membranes. In his Ph.D. he studying Preparation, Characterization and Performance evaluation of polyacrylonitrile / Polyvinylidene fluoride (PAN/PVDF) Virgin and Blend Ultrafiltration Membranes. Preparation, Characterization and Performance evaluation of SiO2 and TiO2 Nanoparticle Modified PAN / PVDF and PAN-PVDF Blend Ultrafiltration and Nanofiltration membranes.
