PhD student Priyanka Sathe

 I am a PhD student from the Department of Marine Science & Fisheries at CAMS, SQU. My proposed research project entitled “Development of novel nanotechnology based photocatalytic coatings for prevention of biofouling” deals with antifouling & other applications of nanotechnology based coatings. Biofouling is a major problem for maritime industry as well as for membrane technologies used for desalination in the Sultanate of Oman. My major research interests lies in applicability of nanocoatings to provide a chemical free solution for microbial fouling. Another aspect of my study will include development of nanocoatings based prefiltration technology for desalination plants.
