General Information

Ashok S. Sangani is a Professor in the Department of Biomedical and Chemical Engineering at Syracuse University where he has been on the faculty since 1982. 

Professor Sangani received his BS degree from the University of Bombay in 1976, and, under guidance of Professor M. M. Sharma, spent one year in that university working on a project evaluating the performance of wire-gauze packings in distillation columns. Professor Sangani then joined Columbia University in 1977 to work on his Master's Degree. His M.S. thesis under Professor Gryte's guidance involved X-ray diffraction studies of blends of directionally solidified polymer blends. He then further pursued his graduate studies in Chemical engineering at Stanford University. His Ph.D. thesis, guided by Professor Acrivos, was on transport phenomena in two-phase systems. 

Professor Sangani worked as a visiting scientist at the IBM Research Center in the summer of 1985 and as a visiting professor at The Johns Hopkins University during his sabbatical year of 1989-90. He was also an adjunct professor at Cornell University during 1994-2000. 

He is a member of AIChE and ACS.
