Dutta named a fellow of mechanical engineering society

Dutta-P-2013-80PULLMAN, Wash. – Prashanta Dutta, a professor in the School of Mechanical and Materials Engineering, recently was named a 2013 fellow of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) for his fundamental contributions in micro, nano and bio fluidics.

He joined the school in 2001; he has established the microfluidics research group to design and develop miniature devices for separation, sensing and energy applications. His seminal works have contributed to the fundamental understanding of electric field driven transport in fluidic devices.

Some of Dutta’s scientific contributions include introduction of multi-dimensional electrophoretic models to design microchips for protein sensing, separation and preconcentration and development of analytic models for electromagnetic heating for industrial and food processing.

Dutta received an M.S. in mechanical engineering from the University of South Carolina, Columbia, and a Ph.D. in mechanical engineering from Texas A&M University. He serves as associate editor of the society’s Journal of Fluids Engineering.
