Joydeep Dutta, Professor at Department of Applied Physics, has over two decades of experience in developing technologies for water treatment. Prof. Dutta’s group is considered one of the top 5 research groups in the world in capacitive deionization device research that has produced over two dozen research publications, three patents and a spin-off company, Stockholmwater Technology AB. Dutta is the head of in Functional Materials Group and also the cluster leader of decentralised water systems in KTH Water Center.
A well-known technologist for water treatment, Dutta’s work has recently been selected in IVA 100 list for 2020. The group is equipped with state-of-the-art instrumentation for water research, with more than half the researchers (in a group of 12 people) working with water related research activities. Key focus is in capacitive deionization, solar photocatalysis, water electrolysis, microplastics, PFAS.
