Dr. Anup Paul

Assistant Professor

Biography

Dr. Anup Paul received his PhD from IIT Madras in 2015 and worked as Assistant Professor at Tezpur University before joining NIT Arunachal Pradesh in 2015.

Dr. Anup Paul is working in the field of biological heat transfer and fluid flow, laser mediated hyperthermia treatment in presence of nanoparticles etc. He has previously worked on thermal ablation of bio-tissues embedded with large blood vessels during NIR Laser assisted plasmonic photo-thermal therapy. Currently, he is working on laser assisted photo-thermal heating of lung tissues embedded with vscular trees, Microwave tumor ablation, heat and flow maldistribustion in microchannel heat sink.
